Law school anxiety before you even get there is common. You've heard (correctly) that it's the hardest thing you'll ever face, as hard as two or three semesters of college at once. And it's true.

To survive law school, you need your brain to be in 5th gear. Start revving your mental engine NOW.

So how can you prepare yourself for this harrowing (in the literal sense of breaking up and leveling) event?

By reading high-vocabulary magazines:

  Atlantic Monthly
National Geographic
The New Yorker
Mother Jones
Harper's Magazine
The Nation
The New Republic

No matter what your intellectual or political leanings, one of those should suit you. Notice that Time, Newsweek, People, and Sports Illustrated aren't on the list. They're generally written for people with a high school to college vocabulary, and it's time to aim higher.

And by looking at some of the several dozen commonly recommended books .
