We offer help with all aspects of the Law School Admission Process

We have tailor-made strategies for each prospective student by knowing the admissions selection process from the inside, having made tens of thousands of admissions decisions ourselves, and by getting to know each client on a personal level. We create a distinctive brand for each client, and it is that brand that takes applicants right on the edge and makes them memorable to be elevated into an admit.

Disturbingly, advice from many so called “experts” on law school admissions is rife with critical errors. We are dismayed by how often these errors arise and how frequently they are perpetuated by people who have never had admissions file reading responsibilities.

Admission to law school for our clients is our professional responsibility and this is a responsibility we take very seriously. That is why in partnering with us you will always be working one-on-one with someone who is a former voting member of an admissions committee at a law school. In addition, your application will be reviewed by a highly detail-oriented professional editor before it is submitted.

More broadly, there are hundreds of strategies that work in admissions. We know because when we were on the inside, we have seen them turn the heads of admissions committees time and time again. Our job is to take your unique talents and experience and translate these so that you rise to the top of the applicant pool.

Every year we send the majority of our clients to top 10 law schools.
