We encourage transfer clients to begin working on their application as soon as possible – as early as the summer before they begin their 1L year! Whether you’re starting early or beginning after finals, we work at your pace – as quickly or as measured as necessary in order to best help you accomplish your goals.
Most law school transfers require comprehensive guidance and support through the entire application process. To start, your Primary Counselor will guide you through holistic introspection and brainstorming exercises to create outlines for your Personal Statement and, if applicable, a Diversity Statement and addenda. Drawing upon years of collective knowledge about each program’s distinct offerings, your Primary Counselor will help you refine your target school list. Your Primary Counselor will then guide you through development and revision of your Personal Statement, Diversity Statement and resume. Additionally, your Primary Counselor will help you develop a strategy for your Letters of Recommendation, from establishing relationships with professors to actually requesting their recommendation.
A seasoned Law Counselor, a second set of eyes, will review your Personal Statement and Diversity Statement and provide insight and feedback from a different perspective. In addition, you will have guidance to create supplemental and school specific content (including scholarship essays), and addenda (LSAT, GPA or both) for up to six (6) schools. Post–submission, your Primary Counselor will help you prepare for interviews, if applicable, assist with negotiating school-specific merit scholarships, and, if needed, develop waitlist strategies and review letters of continuing interest (LOCIs).
