“A step by step, issue-by-issue, walk-through of the challenges that face every new law student, with the emotion and stories that bring the experience to life for the reader!”

Admit it-you’ve been captivated by courtroom dramas, intrigued by national lawsuits, and, overall, fascinated by the opportunity a lawyer has to change the world (at the same time as still making a decent living).
The ability to interpret the law and fight for justice gives the legal profession a unique prestige. With more law students than lawyers, on the other hand, it now appears that the power and romantic allure of the law has overshadowed reality. The daily life of law school students and attorneys is steadily misrepresented in popular media, and more prospective attorneys enter law school uncertain of what awaits them both in the classroom and in their career.
Some of the facts that every entering law student needs to know include:
–college majors do matter-but not in the way you think
–grades don’t matter-as much as the LSAT
–there is not a job waiting for you at the end
–an honor code will be instilled in you
–you’ll make a difference
Finally, the truth revealed
