Schools A-Z. A very convenient list of links to law school
home pages. From Findlaw.com (which is another site you should visit!).

Find schools by GPA / LSAT data, geographical location, keywords,
etc. This is the online version of the LSAC's "Official Guide"

News and World Report Rankings. Unfortunately, US News
and World Report only puts some of its rankings online for free;
you have to pay for the rest. But no matter -- you shouldn't pay much
attention to those rankings anyway. Trust us.
Ranking Game. Create your own rankings! Designed to show that
law school rankings change dramatically based on how you weight the
input factors, this little web-based program lets YOU choose how to
weight the usual factors and calculates the rankings for you. It can
be a bit hard to master at first, but once you figure it out you can
entertain yourself with this thing for hours (especially if you have
a paper due the next day).

know about law school? Not much, so they got the Princeton Review
to write some stuff for them. But it's worth reading anyway.

gigantic law school forum in several cities around the country. The
Boston forum is happening on Saturday, September 10, 2005. Click on

source of all things LSAT: the "Law School Admissions Council,"
or LSAC. These are the people who inflict the LSAT on students each
year, and their web page is absolutely stuffed with information about
it -- test dates, registration deadlines, links to online registration,
you name it. Follow this link and look for the menu of options on
the left side of the page. Want to read our advice about the LSAT?
FAQ. From the LSAC. The questions focus on details -- can
I cancel my score, how many times can I take the test, etc.

carefully. And these three aren't the only ones out there - there
are many more! Try a Google search if you're curious.

Once again, the best plan is to go right to the source on this one.

authorities). You can get all the LSDAS information you need on their

a pretty useful site! They've revised it recently to make it more
