Personal Statements can be the most challenging and important aspects of a law school application. With little guidance on content or format provided by law schools, candidates often feel like they are guessing at what an admissions committee wants to hear, a risky strategy in today's ultracompetitive admissions arena. Admit Advantage consultants demystify the Personal Statement process by providing insights on content, format, and strategy. How an applicant crafts a personal statement – the effectiveness of the argument – is equally as important as the subject of the statement. Admit Advantage provides guidance on both aspects. Services include assistance with topic selection, personal statement review, and editing. Our consultants help applicants construct personal statements that share insights into their abilities, experiences, and character that complete a well-rounded, distinctive application.
Admit Advantage helps applicants structure compelling essays and helps directly address common questions associated with the law school essays:
Our consultants provide strategy assistance and comprehensive essay reviews to ensure candidates submit compelling essays that thoroughly address all questions - explicit and implied.
While the various rankings of law programs are a good starting point for school selection, rankings alone cannot tell you which schools best fit your background and career goals. Admit Advantage will help you determine which programs best match your individual experiences, qualifications, and long-term career and personal aspirations.
Using detailed profiles of law schools that include proprietary information generated by our consultants and clients who have attended the schools, Admit Advantage will help you weigh important factors in selecting your target schools, including your intended focus, geographic preferences, GPA and LSAT scores, and academic focus. Additionally, our consultants will help you consider and evaluate the characteristics of a school's curriculum and learning approach, alumni network, brand, and career services department.
Our consultants work with clients to determine a personalized application strategy based on each client's academic history and future aspirations. By developing a solid strategy beforehand, clients can focus on a set of schools likely to meet their educational and career needs. A focused strategy also saves times and money. The choice of a law school should be based on more than a review of the numbers. Schools offer different strengths, cultures and opportunities to their students. As such, schools also look for unique qualities in a candidate. In the end, applicants are not applying to law school generically; they are applying to a particular law school and should write their applications accordingly. Admit Advantage assists clients in developing a strategy to do so.
Resumes are an important piece of the admissions package, both in their content as well as their form. Consultants work with clients to draft a resume that highlights past accomplishments, conveys strength of character, and indicates the characteristics that predict law school success. For those applicants that have not had significant post-college work or legal experience, the resume is especially important in highlighting aspects of academic and community experience that signal potential for career success in the legal field. A candidate's experiences, the way in which the candidate dealt with those experiences and the candidate's ability to convey those experiences in writing all form a part of the resume to be reviewed and evaluated by admissions committees. Admit Advantage consultants assist candidates in addressing each of the areas to ensure that their resumes are both thoughtful and complete.
Admit Advantage consultants work with applicants to select and solicit the most effective recommenders for their applications. The choice of recommender, as much as the content of the actual recommendation, says something about the applicant. Unfortunately the question of who to ask is not as simple as picking the friendliest or most prestigious professor. Consultants help clients select recommenders and also assist in developing an informed "ask", which is designed to ensure that the recommendations received convey the information required for a complete and attractive application.
A distinctive law school application is a coherent package that conveys key points in a way that impresses the reviewer. Law school applications offer several options for candidates to distinguish themselves beyond the numbers. Essays, resumes, recommendations, and work and academic history all provide opportunities for candidates to present a more holistic picture of themselves as they are applying for admission. The challenge for applicants is assembling all of these components in a way that conveys essential information without being redundant or scattered. Law school applications defy common wisdom in some ways -- more is not always better; the most impressive name is not always the best; legal experience is not always the most relevant; a success story is not always better than a lesson in failure. Based on previous consulting and admissions experience, Admit Advantage consultants work with clients to find and craft their stories.
