What #PROPELS Ms. JD Board Member Jane Rosales

1. Three things that #PROPEL me are: (1) my family and friends  (2)  (3) My amazing family, friends, and partner Roy, who keep me grounded and remind me to find the fun in life. 2.

The Law School Lowdown - Book Review

Three reasons why I would recommend this book to anyone interested in law school: 1.      Comprehensiveness - I’ve read lots of law school and law school application books so I wasn’t expecting to learn anything new when I picked this book up.  Yet I was pleasantly surprised that I did learn something (what text book supplements are and which ones to get, etc). Most books focus on one aspect of law school. This gave a broad yet detailed overview of the whole picture. 2.      Experience of the author – Many applicants attend law school directly from college, so naturally I…
