"Secrets to Getting Into Harvard Law School"

Postby englawyer » Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:31 pm

--LinkRemoved--

I especially like these gems:

"Getting into Harvard basically starts with High School. Grades have to be perfect. Other things like extracurricular activities are extremely important. While Harvard appreciates football and basketball, those are not the type of extracurricular activities they are looking for. They are looking for extracurricular activities such as a debate team that wins conferences, a language club, and things that exercise the mind rather than the body."

"The interview is one of the biggest aspects considered by the admissions board at Harvard Law School."

"Many times, classes are taken in the Bachelor's program that is completely irrelevant to law. That is why it is important to take law oriented classes for electives and not easy classes that are a breeze."

Ha, what a joke. This article needs to be one line.

"Get good grades in college, start studying for the LSAT really early."

Where's the part about the 99th percentile LSAT score?

what lies, getting into HLS totally starts during pre-school; you gotta beat those other kids out during nap time, study the LSAT instead of getting those wasted sleeping hours in

This article, in addition to being wrong in substance, is very poorly written. It contains several grammatical mistakes. Seriously, the article reads like it was written by an 8th grader.

Case in point:

"They expect the potential students to know what is expected because if it is not, then they figure that the student does not want to go to school there bad enough"
