While the law school admissions process can appear daunting, Michelle Kim Hall’s “4 Ways Undergraduates Can Strengthen Law School Profile” offers good basic advice for getting the most out of the various aspects of the law school application.

Most law school applications consist of a few basic parts: undergraduate GPA, LSAT score, letters of recommendation, professional resume, and a personal statement. Hall analyzes these pieces (minus the personal statement) one at a time, explains their value to law school admissions councils, and offers straightforward advice on how to make each part of the law school application into a strength, in turn making the applicant more likely to gain admission to his or her law school of choice.
