Letter From The Author

Dear Reader, If you are reading this letter, you likely have an interest—nominally at least—in law school admissions. Which naturally prompts the question: Why this book? Why take up with this particular admissions guide, when others clearly abound—others of a more general variety, with an author of more traditional composure, and which include exclamation points and checklists and other accoutrement of Guidance to which you are, no doubt, accustomed? And I will tell you why, Dear Reader. This book has pluck; it is infused with a combination of honesty and carefree humor that not only avoids undermining, but indeed enhances, the altogether dryer and more adult subject matter to which the book’s formalities are dedicated. At times, the admissions process will be long and harrowing. Trust me when I tell you that a long, harrowing admissions guide will not ease the process. Despite contrary appearances, this book was penned for a general audience, not just for applicants to Yale Law School; indeed, not just for law school applicants. Therefore, even as I recommend the book wholly and exuberantly to law school applicants, I also recommend it—just as wholly and just as exuberantly—to potential readers who have chosen a different course in life. Finally, Dear Reader, you needn’t worry: the rest of the book is written quite differently from the present letter. It is written more directly, less indulgently. In my own estimation, it is written more like a book ought to be written. Thanks—I do hope you’ll give this a chance. Kiel Brennan-Marquez
