Interview:

What has your experience with the law school application process been like?

It started over ten years ago when I was an applicant myself! I was the first in my family to go to college, so graduate school applications were completely foreign. I was lucky to have some great mentors, though, and I ended up at my top choice law school. Later, I worked for close to six years in law school admissions and saw how the process worked at a number of institutions. I’ve read thousands of applications and I have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t.

What brings you to Powerscore?

I used some of Powerscore’s materials to study for the LSAT (which worked out well for me!), so it’s been a company I’ve respected for a long time. I’m passionate about working with students, and I know from personal experience how the application process can be difficult to navigate. I’m excited to use my behind-the-scenes experience to help students craft the best applications possible.

What is your counseling philosophy?

I think it’s important to get to know each student I work with. Why are they applying to law school? How did they get to this point, and what do they hope to achieve? There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to the application process it’s only by doing individualized work with each client that we can discover the best approach to their application.

Who can benefit most from meeting with admissions counselors at Powerscore?

Good question! I think anybody who feels overwhelmed by or anxious about the admissions process will benefit from Powerscore’s services. We can help with broad strategic questions like: where should you apply? What should you highlight in your application? How can you best position yourself for financial aid? But we can also help with the nitpicky details: Is your resume formatted correctly? Do you have typos in your personal statement?

What’s the biggest piece of advice you would give to an applicant?

Start getting your ducks in a row as soon as possible, and apply early! Nearly every law school operates on a “rolling admissions” basis, so applying early puts you in the best position for admission and financial aid opportunities.

What should an applicant be thinking about this time of year?

In early September, the biggest thing is certainly to register for the LSAT this fall if you haven’t taken it already or if you plan to retake it. If you are going to take it, make a study schedule and stick to it! Powerscore classes are a great way to prepare, but no matter what you do you should prioritize studying as much as possible. After that, I would plan to spend substantial time on developing your personal statement. Start early so that you have lots of time for revisions.

Which schools should applicants apply to?

That depends on a lot of factors and will depend on what each applicant is looking for. For some students it may be important to go to a highly-ranked law school, and for others it may be better to go to a school with ties to the market they plan to practice in. It really depends for each student and I’d encourage anybody struggling with this question to talk to me!
