Capacity Update 8/21/2018

I wanted to write with a brief update of our capacity. This cycle has been unlike any other for us regarding consulting inquiries, both from prospective students and from law schools. We have seen more interest, by a good margin, than any previous year. For prospective law students applying this cycle, i.e. 2018/2019, we are currently on a waitlist of about 60 people. We have been interviewing a number of former admissions officers who have application and admissions experience so that we can t

Spivey Consulting Client Capacity Update

With the recent addition of Tom Robinson to our team from Harvard Law, we are about at 60% capacity. That said, as in the past few cycles, we expect to reach capacity around September or October.

Let the New Cycle Begin!

This is going to be a lengthy post that covers multiple different topics, so much so that it gets the "one blog to rule them all" picture above. It involves this current cycle (first post), the upcoming cycle (next two posts), and some major announcements on our end. There is a lot going on, and I wanted to say I'm excited as ever for the upcoming cycle (which is going to be a very intersting one to follow — if you noticed our tweet, LSAT registrations this summer are up 24% from last year), hon

Remaining Capacity for 2017/2018, and Reserving Spots for next cycle 2018/2019

A note on our remaining capacity — we have had a few spots open up for applications for the 2017/2018 cycle, and we still have room for a la carte wait list and scholarship negotiation help for this cycle as well. We are approximately 40% full for NEXT cycle (2018/2019), so reserve your spot now as we still have locked in prices at the current rates for upcoming clients, and every year we have hit capacity earlier than the year before. Want one of those spots? All you need to do is send us an
