For Success in Life - Take Care of the Small Stuff

As George Bush Senior (not the current president) used to say:

“99 percent of life is just showing up.”

During any given year I speak to hundreds of pre-law students. They all want to improve their chances of admission. In life, success is usually based on working consistently and taking care of the small things – the things that anybody can do. Rarely is success the result of one isolated success. This is true of:

- your grades
- your improvement in sports
- etc, etc.

The same is true for getting into law school.

For Success In Law Admissions – Take Care Of Your Grades

Your grades will be the single biggest factor in your application. You must focus on your courses and not let anything interfere with the time that you need to achieve high grades.

LSAT Prep Can Take Time Away From Your Courses

Doing the LSAT in June has the following advantages:

  1. You can prepare for the LSAT in May when you are finished with school. You will still be in “exam mode” and will be able to focus more of your attention on your LSAT prep.
  2. If you need to take the LSAT a second time – that second time will be in October.

If you can’t take the LSAT in June, then you should try to take it in October.
