It is difficult to find a professional way to express that Erika is the best admissions consultant on the planet. From uncertain beginnings to an exciting end, she was one of the most instrumental parts of my admissions process. I began my journey with minimal insight (for context, before Erika and I began working together, I had a color-coded resume I’d built on Microsoft PowerPoint). By the end, I’d realized choosing to work with Erika and Spivey was one of the best decisions I could have made regarding the admissions process.
Though sometimes it was just a few ideas, other times, Erika woke up to a full inbox. We were constantly in touch. With a steadfast patience for my many questions, she guided me through all my ideas, hypotheticals, and any worrisome thoughts that crossed my mind. Erika showed so much commitment to my success throughout the entire process. I could not be more grateful to Spivey for the opportunity to work with an advisor who was as invested in me as Erika was.
If I had to go through this process again, I would without a doubt choose to work with Erika. She was always patient with me, and is an attentive listener. She brought new ideas to my attention, and expanded my understanding of old ones. During moments I felt unsure, Erika stepped in with a wise and well-reasoned response. She is hands down one of the best communicators I have worked with in a professional setting. She was thoughtful and thorough with every response, whether we were on the phone for two hours or communicating at length by email. Articulate and sensible, I quickly came to trust and appreciate her judgement. Her professional yet relaxed demeanor meant I always felt comfortable discussing my ideas with her, from the far-fetched to the everyday. Her insight was valuable not only for understanding admissions, but also for peace of mind during a process that is both unfamiliar and uncertain.
I truly feel I cannot say enough good things about Erika’s positive impact on my law school admissions process. She’s fantastic! When I reflect on what I paid and what I received, please know that the value far surpassed all of my high expectations (set by Spivey’s great reviews online). I am happy to contribute to this positive feedback.
