On June 11, 2013, I will release “The Law School Admission Game: Play Like An Expert, Second Edition” – the New, Updated, and Expanded version of the Amazon Bestselling Law School Admission Guide that I wrote in 2009. To whet your appetite for the new book, I’ll be sharing snippets on the blog.
The book will cover everything you need to know to make good decisions throughout your law school application process, including:
- What the LSAT entails, what you should do to prepare for it, and how to select an LSAT prep program.
- How you can best use your time during college to set yourself up to be competitive for admission to law schools (and to top law schools).
- Issues unique to international students and non-traditional applicants.
- Who should be writing letters of recommendation on your behalf and what they should say about you.
- The law school personal statement.
- How to explain weaknesses in your background, including “character and fitness” questions and how to address disabilities.
- What the rolling admissions process really means, and whether you should apply Early Decision or Early Notification.
- How to deal with those intimidating secondary and optional essays, including diversity statements.
- How to choose law schools to apply to based on your credentials and goals.
- The mechanics of applying to law school.
- How to interact with representatives of law schools during law school forums, recruiting events, campus visits and interview opportunities.
- What to do if you are waitlisted.
- Choosing where to attend and how to negotiate scholarships.

Shared! Hello, Ms. Levine, I’m a second year student at New College of Florida studying History. I’m currently beginning to prep for the LSAT and I’ve started to request information from Law Schools. I would like to intern, but I don’t know if I will be able to since I already work 30 hours a week. Will it be viewed negatively that I cannot afford to have an internship? What would you recommend that I focus on in the immediate future?
Patrick, if you already have significant work experience, an internship really isn’t necessary! You can already show an understanding of the real world and that you know what it takes to survive in the world!

Hello Ann, I have been admitted to Hamline Law, one of my dream schools. My question is this, I want to read your book but I cannot find it on my nook. If I have to buy a physical copy please let me know. Also should I wait to June to pick up the new expanded edition? Thank you for your time!
Hi Chris – it’s on nook
If you mean The Law School Decision Game, then you need to resort to paperback – sorry!
I appreciate you pointing that out – I’m going to get it out on Nook ASAP – I had no idea it wasn’t available.
Yes I meant law school decision game, because I have purchased the law school admissions game on my nook already, and have read all 118 pages in one night a few months ago. Thanks for the info, look forward to the read after finals and before Law School.
My name is Elisha and I’m Ann’s assistant. I wanted to let you know “The Law School Decision Game” is available on Nook. If you haven’t already purchased a paperback copy, you can get it electronically now.
