Rather than relying on one prep course for the Law School Admission Test, Haley Taylor Schlitz, a 16-year-old recent college graduate, took three within a five-month period.

She was accepted at nine law schools and says having study organization plans, coupled with finding her true self as a homeschooler, helped lead to her success.

In this episode of Asked and Answered with the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward, she details some of those organization plans, as well as how she’ll be spending the summer before starting law school at Southern Methodist University this fall.

Not surprisingly, plans include various programs on preparing for life as a 1L.
