How to do Well in College: Pre Law College Advice

Many have asked how to do well in college with law school in mind. Making yourself attractive to law schools is not just about what you do as it but how you do it. Law schools want to see applicants who are passionate and driven, but also detail oriented and aware. Admissions committees want to be able to make sense of your academic and extracurricular endeavors in order to get a clearer picture of you and your goals. Therefore, begin to think about your choices in college within the context of your long term goals.

No matter what your interests are, the admissions committee wants to be able to see why law school is the logical next step in your life and career.

Wondering how to do well in college is the right question to ask, but it is only the beginning. Spend some time learning about your interests and strengths. Think about how these aspects of yourself pull you towards law school, and how they would contribute to the law school community. Thinking along these lines is a great way to begin drafting your law school application in your mind well before you intend to apply.
