Learn everything you need to know to get into law school. This third edition (and completely re-written and updated) version of the bestselling law school admission guide provides detailed information on how to present yourself in the law school application process. Ann Levine brings 15+ years of experience in law school admissions (as director of admissions for law schools and as a law school admission consultant) to provide advice about writing the best law school personal statement and optional essays, how to choose people to write letters of recommendation, what to include in your resume, how to explain weaknesses in your application such as a low GPA or LSAT score, the best way to prepare for the LSAT, and how to choose a law school. Once you've submitted your law school applications, this book will continue to guide you on getting accepted from a waiting list, negotiating law school scholarships, and transferring to a new law school after your 1L year. The book includes an analysis of personal statement introductions as well as complete essays successfully used by applicants, tips on writing optional essays for law schools, and sample resumes and addenda. Topics include:<br />- How will law schools view my credentials, activities, and work experience? <br />- What is the rolling admission process and how can it impact whether I am accepted? <br />- Will the fact that I am a non-traditional applicant help me or hurt me? <br />- Why is the personal statement important and how do I select a topic? <br />- How do I explain a low LSAT score, inconsistent GPA, academic probation, or arrest record? <br />- Should I write an optional essay? <br />- Should I share information about my learning disability?<br />- Why was I placed on a waiting list and what can I do to increase my chances of acceptance? <br />- How can I use scholarship offers to negotiate between law schools? <br />- How do I decide where to attend? <br />The tips and insights provided within The Law School Admission Game: How to Play Like an Expert is the second best thing to having your own law school admission consultant. Ms. Levine offers candid and tangible advice in a conversational tone with an open and encouraging (but brutally honest) approach. This book will change how you look at the law school admission process and help you create your strongest possible application package. This book offers strategies for all law school applicants, including specific advice for people: <br />-Determined to attend a Top Law School <br />-Hoping for the chance to attend any law school <br />-Seeking an affordable legal education <br />-Returning to school after being in the work force <br />-Still in college with limited work and life experience <br />-Considering how to build their experiences and resumes to strengthen their applications <br />-Concerned about writing a compelling personal statement because they haven't overcome significant obstacles <br />- Know the story they want to tell about overcoming obstacles in life but are not sure what to emphasize. <br /><br />No matter your life story or potential weaknesses in your law school application, The Law School Admission Game: How to Play Like an Expert will guide you through every piece of the application process. <br />Both previous editions of this book have been Amazon.com bestsellers, and this one is the first to feature full-length essays used by successful applicants in the past, as well as a self-study LSAT schedule. <br /><br />If you're even thinking about applying to law school, this book is about to become your go-to resource.

Since "Studying Engineering: A Road Map to a Rewarding Career" exploded onto the market in 1995, it has become the best selling Introduction to Engineering textbook of all time. Adopted by over 300 U.S. institutions, and reaching more than 150,000 students, the book has made major inroads into the "sink or swim" paradigm of engineering education. Armed with the book as a powerful tool for "student development," large numbers of engineering programs have implemented Introduction to Engineering courses to improve the academic performance and retention rates of their students.<br /><br />Now, this pioneering text has been updated and expanded to bring students even more clarity in the process of achieving success in engineering study. <br /><br />Significant new material has been added to the Fourth Edition including:<br /><br />Ø A Prologue to provide students with a perspective on what this book has to offer and how to get it.<br /><br />Ø New sections on topics including fixed vs. growth mindset, reverse engineering, sustainability, life-long learning, study abroad, entrepreneurship, teamwork and leadership, engineering ethics, and inspirational and motivational quotations<br /><br />Ø Incorporation of the University of Maryland human-powered helicopter project to illustrate the engineering design process in action<br /><br />Ø The adoption of the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges for Engineering to provide an indication of future directions for engineering<br /><br />Ø Substantially more graphics to make the text more accessible and readable<br /><br />"Studying Engineering" is written for students both those who are already engineering majors and those who are considering engineering as their field of study. <br /><br />The purpose of this innovative and exciting book is to enhance student success. Through its eight chapters it teaches students about: <br /><br />1. The keys to success in engineering study <br /><br />2. The rewards and opportunities of an engineering career. <br /><br />3. An understanding of the field of engineering—past, present, and future <br /><br />4. Insight into the learning process <br /><br />5. Academic success strategies needed to excel in mathematics, science, and engineering courses <br /><br />6. The process of personal development needed to ensure that their behaviors and attitudes support their goal of becoming an engineer <br /><br />7. Ways to enhance the quality of their education through participation in student organizations, pre-professional employment, engineering projects, study abroad, and service the institution and/or community <br /><br />8. The engineering education system and how to take full advantage of that system. <br /><br />Students can read the book on their own or use it in conjunction with an Introduction to Engineering course having a “student development/student success” focus. Reflections are interspersed throughout each chapter so that students can read a section and then stop to engage in a guided reflection about what they just read. Completion of many of 203 end-of-the-chapter problems provides opportunity for significant learning experience. A design project to “Design Your Process of Becoming a World-Class First-Year Engineering Student” provides a vehicle for students to become actively involved in their growth and development as an math/science/engineering student.
