I’m in a holiday mood – I finally have my voice back, made it to the gym for the first time in a few weeks, and have a new hairstyle (thanks to a fire-place lighting incident – don’t ask). So, I’m spreading the JOY….. The first ever Law School Expert GIVEAWAY!!!!!

My friends at gave me 3 FREE LSAT prep courses to give away for people taking the February LSAT. These are Internet/video courses – you can take them no matter where you’re located. The folks at Knewton are totally happy to answer questions, and they are really proud of their innovative approach to education for the LSAT. I actually met with these guys at their headquarters in NYC – the company is new but run by some pretty bright folks. If you’ve been looking for a FREE LSAT PREP COURSE, this is your chance!!!!

One FREE LSAT PREP COURSE is to give away to the Law School Expert blog reader who provides the best idea for an upcoming Law School Expert Blog Talk Radio Show.

  1. Many law school candidates wish to attend law school, while not having a desire to become a lawyer. Additionally, the nature of the current legal market have put many law school graduates in a situation where they are scrambling to find any job, not necessarily related to the legal field. An idea for one of your shows could be, “Using a Law Degree for a Non-Legal Job”. Aspects to discuss could include the benefits of having a JD while working in a non-legal position and the problem of being overqualified.

  2. Law school applicants are afforded the convenience of adding an addendum to corroborate their law school applications. An addendum is often used to shed light on matters of an applicant’s life that are not sufficiently expressed in the application. However, law school applicants may unintentionally weaken their application by drawing unnecessary attention to weak parts of an application and come off as whining and making excuses. If done correctly, an addendum has the potential to give an applicant the extra bump in consideration at a law school where the applicant may not necessarily have the magic numbers.

  3. There are several books, websites and industries built around the recent college graduate who wants to attend law school, but little to no assistance that is applicable to the older law school applicant and/or law school graduate. These older law school applicants /graduates generally bring a plethora of life and work experience, skills, knowledge and abilities that enhance the student and law school experience for all involved. As such, I believe your next show should address the older law school applicant/graduate.

  4. Hi Ann!
    Your happy and bright Christmas wishes really made my day. Thank you.
    As you always emphasize, the rankings are not the only information to base the judgements on when it comes to choosing which schools to apply or to go after the acceptance. But it is easier to rely on outright rankings because they are more accessible and reliable. While there are plenty of websites talking about rankings based on concrete numbers such as student faculty ratio and median LSAT scores, not many talk about the “real” side of each law schools, especially those not convered by “top 14 rankings.”

    Right now, some probably have heard from law schools and some probably are still debating on where to apply. Especially for the December LSAT takers, rather than shooting for top five or fourteen, realistically sorting out the schools that they are likely to be accepted and more importantly, they will appreciate is crucial. In that sense, information about “unheard” law schools can be very helpful. The show’s title can be something similar to “insider’s guide.” Students who think their law schools are wonderful in many aspects and truly competent compared to other well-known law schools, could be invited to the show and provide a true “insider’s” insight. I’ve seen many of my friends regret because they’d only looked at rankings before they apply. They wished they knew more information about the schools that the websites only concerned with rankings couldn’t cover.

    When applying to college, I found insider’s guide books written by college students most helpful because they not only provided most realistic information but also assessed the school through not the reviewer’s or faculty’s but the student’s perspective. But there aren’t similar books about law schools, so I think the blog show that can provide such insider’s insight could be most helpful for the law school applicants in directing them to choose most suitable law schools.

    I always enjoy your blog show. I download them from itunes and save in my ipod to listen whenever I need information. Winning a chance to listen to innovative LSAT lectures might be even better, but even if not, I am glad I get a chance to contribute to my favorite talk show!

    Happy Christmas!

  5. Thank you for this great promotion. I could really use the free Knewton course!

    I have a great topic for your show. I think you explore holistic / whole body ways to score higher on the LSAT. For example, what spa treatment would be best for reducing test day stress? Are carrots the best test day snack? Should I have the blueberry muffin for breakfast?

    1. Clay,
      I really hope you’re being funny because I really enjoyed the humor! Perhaps that’s the whole point – we need a blog talk radio show on something that shows the humor in the law school admission process ; )

  6. @Ann Levine
    Thank you Ann, I am so glad that you enjoy my humor. The magical LSAT diet really should be not so much eating the magic carrot :), but really, not taking it all so serious….

  7. “How to shop for the right school for you?”

    Many applicants focus their time and resources on applying to schools based on various rankings. But, what about lesser known regional schools? What do employers (i.e. judicial, private practice, government, and other organizations) think about the impact of attending such a school?
