Frequently Asked Questions

I might like help. Where do I begin?

First give yourself a break, everyone finds the law school application process overwhelming! It’s easier to find uninformed opinions than expert advice on the Internet, so check out my blog with U.S. News & World Report. When you feel ready, email me for a free brief intro call, with no hassle or commitment!

What kinds of clients do you work with?

Some are immigrants or first-gen grads unsure of how to present themselves. Others took a long road to law school or worry about weak points in their applications. Some are aiming for top-tier schools with no room for error, while others just want to go somewhere local. My help is for everyone. But the clients I  work best with have a sense of humor and perspective and appreciate honest feedback.

How many hours should I buy?

It takes me about 30-60 minutes to review and edit one draft. So, if you think your work is good to go, an hour or two should suffice. For multiple drafts, the five-hour package is a better deal. If you want someone to consult at anytime, without counting hours, consider the unlimited plan.

Why are your rates lower than others’?

Without overhead, employees, or mass marketing, I can charge less than competitors while providing consistent, responsive, and personal service. I like to work one-on-one.

How can you help clients outside the U.S.?

Unlike most countries, legal education in the U.S. is only postgraduate: either a JD for aspiring lawyers or an LLM or SJD for existing lawyers. Most foreign lawyers choose the one-year LLM program, but I can help qualified foreign clients apply to any of those programs within the U.S. Learn more about those degrees here.

For those applying to foreign law programs, such as in Canada or the UK,  I can offer expert editing but not professional advice.

Do you tutor for the LSAT?

Yes, I have tutored and taught LSAT prep for more than 15 years, for Powerscore and independently. I am happy to assist with study strategy or one-on-one tutoring. We can work online, or in-person in New York.

What was your LSAT score?

The same as Elle Woods got in Legally Blonde, 179. I didn’t have a poolside video essay, however.

Why are you an admissions coach?

I  want to see my clients achieve their dreams to become lawyers. Helping them tell their stories keeps my writing skills sharp and funds my advocacy work to promote human rights and fight corruption.

Are you available for public presentations?

Yes, I am happy to speak and answer questions about the law school admissions process near New York or online. I particularly enjoy presenting to audiences of under-served applicants.

Do you offer referral bonuses or discounts?

Yes. Email me for more information!

What if I don’t need a full hour?

Just let me know. Partial hours are charged proportionally, with no minimum.

Will you write my essay for me?

No. But I can provide the strategy, structure, editing, encouragement, and feedback to help anyone write faultless essays.
