For Future Black Law Students
The African American Pre-Law School Advice Guide is a very comprehensive and reader-friendly admissions help book written to assist prospective law students navigate the highly competitive and often mysterious law school admissions process. It also provides information of special interest to African American applicants.
If you want to know the “real deal” about preparing yourself to gain acceptance into the law school of your choice, then you need not look any further! This is the book for you!
This book was written by an African American for African Americans. The author went through the admissions process without having anyone “clue her in.” She was only given little tidbits of information that could have gone further. Here, she goes there and beyond – way beyond!
Unlike other pre-law or law school admissions books, this book not only tells you that you need a certain GPA or LSAT score to get into law school, it provides you with concrete suggestions on how to make yourself a competitive, well-rounded and attractive admissions candidate that law schools would find it difficult to say “no” to - period!
There are a lot of law school admissions books out there, but if you want a comprehensive book that provides you with just about everything you need to know and if you want to gain information from a source written specifically with you in mind and deals with issues directly related to concerns facing African American applicants, you have to read this book!
"The one greatest piece of advice that I could have been given is this - “Strive as if you were trying to get into schools like Harvard, Yale and Stanford, regardless of whether you intend to or not. Understand that law school admissions is competitive to fiercely competitive no matter what law school you are interested in attending. Even the very best applicants with the strongest credentials can be rejected. You should strive for both the 4.0 GPA and the 170 LSAT score. You must make sure that every single component of your application is as competitive as possible. Remember that it is a comparative process and you are being compared with lots of others who are outstanding. Consider how you can make yourself different, better and stronger than the typical above average applicant. Keep your options and outlook high and realize that there are no guarantees.”"

An outstanding piece of work
Evangeline Mitchell's pre-law guide is an ‘outstanding’ piece of work. It's the best I have seen in regard to law admissions help for students of color. How good is it? Black Excel uses it as a resource to counsel students considering law school and we've gotten 100% positive results, with accepts to law schools at all "tier" levels. I am encouraging students, parents, and advisors to get a copy.

This is a very thorough and simple step-by-step guide to law school admissions preparation from a minority perspective. The author emphasizes the necessity of adequate planning and preparation for success in accord with the old adage that, ‘people don’t plan to fail, but rather fail to plan.’ Every prospective law school student must read the book.
