About this service:
One of the biggest advantages of planning ahead is being able to improve your competitiveness as a law school applicant well before it’s time to apply. In most cases, admissions committees consider far more than you GPA and LSAT score when deciding who to offer admission, including your employment history, extracurricular activities, and volunteer activities. This means you have many different ways in which you can increase your competitiveness beyond your GPA and LSAT score – so take advantage!
Our Admissions Action Plan is designed to do exactly that – allow you to maximize your competitiveness across all admission criteria, giving you the best chance of being offered admission when you apply. Your lawyer-advisor will review your Applicant Profile Assessment and make recommendations to help you improve your score across all admission criteria, with specific focus on your weakest areas. These recommendations will be tailored to your location, interests and goals, giving you a personalized action plan for improvement. Your Admission Action Plan will also consider where you’re at on your road to becoming a lawyer, including a visual timeline showing important deadlines to keep your admissions plan on track.
Categories of recommendations:
Opportunities in your community to gain valuable experience and insight
Extra-curricular opportunities tailored to your current school/location
Academic courses and strategies for improvement in your school/area
Recommended volunteer opportunities in your community
Options and suggestions for improving your LSAT score
Examples of recommendations:Here are some previous Admissions Action Plan recommendations our students have received
Many students are not aware of the various clubs they can participate in, many of which are extremely helpful in improving your oral and written communication skills, and giving you a brief taste of some aspects of the law – like presenting oral arguments. Your lawyer-advisor may review the clubs available at your high school and suggest which ones to consider joining based on your interests and goals.
Many law firms are happy to take on volunteers, which gives you an opportunity to get a first-hand glimpse of what the legal profession is all about, and looks good on your resume and applications down the road. Some high schools, colleges and universities even allow internships with law firms for course credit. Your lawyer-advisor will know the details for your specific area and school and may suggest a similar volunteer opportunity you did not even know existed!
Lawyers write – a lot. As a result, your writing skills are a critical component of your law school application, and your application after law school when looking for the job of your dreams. Your lawyer-advisor may suggest a specific writing course in your school, or one available in your community, which will help you develop your writing skills.
