2.0 étoiles sur 5 Good sample essays, poor commentary 4 juin 2011
Par kaybee - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a good book to read if you are interested in seeing sample law school admissions essays. In general, these essays are written at a high level of quality to which many law school applicants would aspire.

However, the title of this book is somewhat misleading. These essays are not necessarily "successful" in the sense that they definitely helped the writers to get into law school; these essays were submitted to the Harvard Crimson newspaper by their authors, not identified by Harvard admissions officers as exceptional essays. Therefore, although these are the essays of successful applicants, it is hard to say to what extent the essays factored into admissions decisions. Based on the quality of the essays compared to the quality of the applicants (most of whom are practicing lawyers with profiles posted online), I'd guess that other factors played a much stronger role in the admission of many of these candidates.

The quality of the commentary provided in this book is also questionable. The reviewers are undergraduate student reporters, not admissions officers, and in many cases their commentary is at odds with that provided by admissions officers on law school web pages and in interviews. Further, the commentary is provided by multiple different reviewers, and each has a different idea of what constitutes a good essay. If nothing else, one might recall this diversity and feel comforted later, when some school unexpectedly offers up a rejection letter -- admissions committees probably have opinions just as diverging as those of Harvard undergraduates. In any case, I wouldn't use the opinions of these students, good writers though they undoubtedly are, as a guide on how to craft a great essay for the very specific purpose of law school admissions.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Really Amazed at How Average and Uninspired Harvard Students Are 22 janvier 2014
Par MannyFresh - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This was bought as an attempt to glimpse into the brilliant minds of the people who successfully make it into Harvard. For whatever reason, I was really expecting them to be tremendous essays. Spoiler Alert: They're not. These essays wouldn't get most non-URM applicants into any of the public Universities here in California, they're just not very good. Fascinating look at what it doesn't take to get into Harvard, as these essays are not creative in the least.

The best thing about reading through this book was the newfound satisfaction in knowing that I didn't waste my money at Harvard. I would never want to be in a place where I'd have to socialize with the cookie-cutter dullards who masterminded these sad two page bursts of sickly drivel.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very helpful source 31 mars 2013

Incredibly useful source for helping prospective law school students compose their personal statements. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering, or in the process of sending out their law school applications. Plus it shows you exactly where you stand in relation to others (it profiles various accepted/rejected students with their personal statements and their LSAT scores/GPA/School/Accolades and shows what schools they got into).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiration 14 août 2012
Par DSeverance - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Inspiration, but nothing else. I really liked this book and it helped inspire me in my writing process, but it gave me nothing else beyond that. The personal essay is just that, personal, and so, just note, that this will not "write the essay for you" or give you skills over night. Just a helpful note from a current law student to potential, future law students.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A decent guide 21 juillet 2012
Par jink - Publié sur
This is just raw essays and commentary. There is no advice on writing a law school admissions essay. The commentary is OK, but sometimes they miss the big picture of what's wrong with the essay because these are edited by undergrads who don't know anything about law school admissions. So don't take the commentary as the authoritative voice of what most law school admissions would say. It's just one non-law applicant's take.

That said, there is a dearth of good essay examples out there for law schools, though there are plenty of bad ones. If you really want to improve, it's best to see what other applicants are writing, which you can do by going to the forums at, and swapping essays with people there. After a while, you will see what makes a bad essay. So it's nice to see well-written essays as an example, and that's the value in this resource.

The biggest problem is that this is a book of essays of Harvard admits, who do more interesting and amazing things than the average applicant. Even if their writing style was more boring, their accomplishments aren't. So what's in it for the rest of us, who lived a life of average opportunities and experiences? Not much, but at least you'll know why you didn't get into Harvard.
