What I like most about being a Stratus Law School Admissions Counselor:
Going to a good law school can truly be a life-changing experience. It opens up so many doors for you professionally, not only in the legal field, but also in business, politics, entertainment and beyond. Most importantly, however, it trains you to think critically and logically, which are skills that you will be able to use throughout your life in all your endeavors. For applicants, this can be both an exciting and stressful time, because so much is on the line. I enjoy learning about my clients’ backgrounds and life moments and working with them through all stages of the application process to present a compelling case to admissions committees.
One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to law school:
Your application and resume are the appropriate settings for you to present the admissions committees with your qualifications and achievements. When approaching your essays, go beyond those impressive facts. Take this as an opportunity to reflect back on your life, how you got to where you are and where you want to go. Explore past events and experiences and think deeply about how they have changed your perspective and what they reflect about you. As you will soon discover, everyone at your law school has stellar resumes, so set yourself apart by showing something deeper to the admissions committee. Law schools are looking for well-rounded and interesting applicants who are passionate and can add value to their school.
