Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it has a nice layout and seemed to have all of the necessary facts on ABA-approved law schools. Having gone through the application process, I realize that this book falls flat on several levels. To start with, some of the data is incorrect. For example, almost all of the application fees listed are less that they actually are. Also, there is very little context about the schools. For example, what is a school known for? Is it a large, ultra competitive environment, does it pride itself on cooperation and close-knit atmosphere, or somewhere in-between? A prospective student can make assumptions from the data alone, but contextual information rounds out the data. Further, admissions are mostly made on GPA & LSAT scores but there are no grids or numerical breakdowns; there are only median values. My best advice is to go to the LSAC's website and review the online version of the "Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools." This guide offers statistical data, school info, links to law schools, and data filtering tools so you can interactively track infomation relevant to you (e.g., your statistical chance of getting into a school based on your GPA & LSAT). Overall, it has a lot more to offer than the Barron's Guide.

Barron's Guide to Law School has become like my bible. I take it with me everywhere and could look at it for hours on end. I just recently decided that law school is definately for me, and this book has helped tremendously. It contains many details about each school, things you may not even really care about. It also contains a sample LSAT test which is very helpful. The book also lists schools by region and maps them so you know exactly where each school is, and so if you know you want to go to school in a certain region, you can find out what schools are nearby. This book is a must for anyone considering law school.

HASH(0xa1e73624) out of 5 stars Essential! May 27 1999
By David Douglas Winters(ronin-sensei@rocketmail.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I simply can't imagine trying to navigate the law school selection and application process without this book. It would be a bargain at several times the listed price.
To summarize the contents, it contains EVERYTHING.
