Prepped admissions counseling goes far beyond personal statement
School Admissions Counseling:
Our admissions counseling program was designed by a former law-school
admissions director, so you get the insider's view on how to make
the best application.
You receive five hours of one-on-one personal counseling on how
to make your law school application stand out from the crowd.
We help you: craft a winning personal statement, get better recommendations,
target your optimal mix of schools, create a law-school specific
resume, and deal with any potentially negative facts in your background.
At only $399 students often save money. Avoid applying
to the "wrong"schools or to too many schools. At a cost
of $50-$75 and several hours work per application, simply avoiding
three or four "wrong" schools pays for the counseling.
Also, a polished application increases your odds of getting into
your first-choice schools and winning the valuable first year
You can do admissions counseling over the phone with our admissions
experts, including former law-school admissions officers. So you
can take advantage of this program even if you don't live in a
city where we conduct classes. Or you can do face to face admissions
counseling with an instructor in your city.

meant to email you earlier, but thank you so much. The resume looks
incredible and the personal statement is absolutely perfect. My
mom said it brought tears to her eyes when she read it. I will let
you know how things go. Thank you again," L. Sanders
am very proud of my personal statement, we did a great job! The
Judge sent me copies of the letters he wrote on my behalf. It is
obvious that he read my letter and personal statement and incorporated
them. You gave very good advice on the letters to my recommenders.
Thanks again for all your help. I knew that if you said you were
going to call at a specific time, you would do it.
I would recommend your company

In addition, I am very thankful for the counseling and help with
the personal statement that I received from Get Prepped. After getting
a [LSAT] score that is still below average, thanks to my tutor for
the tremendous help with personal statement, where he helped me
to present my unique experiences and circumstances in the perspective
that admission committees considers the most, I received acceptance
letter from the school where median LSAT was 158 [well above average]".

Admissions Counseling Case History:
an admissions counselor for Get Prepped I helped many students make
their application more compelling. Additionally, I have worked with
a number of applicants whose "brushes with the law" put them at
a disadvantage in the highly competitive selection process. One
such person was 'Dave.' He had applied to law schools the previous
year but was not admitted, despite an LSAT and GPA that were average
for those schools. The black mark on his application was a plea
bargain. When I reviewed his previous year's applications I saw
that he did an inadequate job of explaining the facts and circumstances
surrounding his arrest and subsequent guilty plea. After many drafts,
we finally created an addendum that was pivotal in winning him an
acceptance from one of the schools that previously rejected him.
Although his was an extreme case, I have yet to work with an applicant
whose application did not benefit immensely from the admissions
counseling program." --Patrick O'Malley, Get Prepped Admissions

about uniqueness of character, abilities, experiences (background),
and diversity and how potential student would contribute to the
diversity of the entering class.
As the bus entered
the heavily guarded military installation, I gazed upon the sign
that read "All the Way." When the bus stopped, several angry Drill
Instructors boarded and began introducing us to a very colorful
vocabulary, usually reserved for drunken Sailors. They instructed
us to gather our belongings, get off the bus and assemble in a circular
formation. As I searched for the strength to get up, I found myself
moving, while several Drill Instructors yelled at us for our clumsy
attempt to dismount the bus and fall into formation. I wondered
if I had made the right choice. However, I have come to realize
that my military experiences have tremendously enhanced my self-worth.
From those first eight weeks of Basic Training to the day I walked
out with an honorable discharge, I gained an enormous amount of
skill and confidence. I grew as a person, and I learned life skills:
discipline, tenacity, leadership, and problem solving abilities,
all of which will enhance my potential as a law student.
In the military,
training makes the difference between failure and success. So whether
one's specialty is exiting aircraft at 1,300 feet, enforcing law
and order around the fort, or taking medical X-rays, people need
training in order to develop discipline and confidence. As the Army
becomes more technologically advanced, so does the guidance individuals
receive. In my case, the Army provided me with high-tech instruction
in the field of electronics communication repair. At the tender
age of 18,I was responsible for operating and maintaining million-dollar
telecommunications equipment. This often involved being located
in remote areas away from other support units, while working under
adverse conditions. However, electronic equipment or theories of
electricity weren't the only things I learned about. The experience
provided me with invaluable skills that will prove critical in the
legal profession. For example, I was required to analyze intricate
electronics circuitry, find problems and then fix them appropriately.
I also had to interact with co-workers, supervisors, and engineers
while I was trying to solve these difficult technical problems.
As a result, I learned the importance of articulating my thoughts
in a coherent and logical fashion while under duress. Being forced
to independently solve complicated problems in a short period of
time strengthened my discipline and tenacity, qualities that will
be essential in Law School.
military also gave me the opportunity to travel abroad. Living in
countries such as Korea, Spain, and Germany and immersing myself
in their cultures has given me perspective on the differences between
the United States and other countries. Each place I have lived has
been unique in some way, from the different languages to the variations
in cultural practices. Dealing with individuals with different backgrounds
has helped me develop a good rapport with people.
From my travels,
I also learned that there can be more than one solution to a problem.
Indeed, having a variety of perspectives makes it easier to come
up with approaches to different problems. My travel experience has
strengthened my interpersonal skills, as well as my integrity and
importantly, my military training provided me with the courage,
strength and dedication to succeed even after I left military service.
I believed that I could accomplish anything, as long as I put my
mind to it. This belief led me to pursue a career in the manufacturing
industry, where I worked for several manufacturing companies, and
eventually convinced me I could succeed in an academic environment.
In each of my jobs, I benefited from my hard work ethic by advancing
to senior technician levels and eventually securing leadership positions
within my department. For six years I enjoyed a variety of challenges
and opportunities, whether it was troubleshooting computer equipment,
collaborating with electronics engineers, or operating industrial
However, I longed
to be in a more intellectual environment, where I might be allowed
to see things from a different perspective. I had always been more
interested in mathematics and science than liberal arts subjects.
So when I decided to go back to school, I eventually ended up taken
courses in philosophy, and the social sciences. Understanding philosophical
and political rhetoric proved to be quite difficult because I had
to analyze abstract theories and assumptions about retribution,
and nature of politics. Nevertheless, I managed to persevere and
even make the Dean's honor roll on a few occasions. My work and
academic experiences have undoubtedly built upon the skills I developed
in the Army.
Through my experiences
in the military, I did find some satisfaction. However, I found
greater happiness in helping others, whether it was using military
resources to aid a community during times of crisis, or participating
in local food or blood drives. For me, there is nothing more gratifying
than helping people in times of need. I always have been a firm
believer that people have a responsibility to give something back
to their community. While military has provided me with invaluable
skills, the desire to help others stems from my traditional Hispanic
upbringing. My parents always stressed the importance of maintaining
and supporting the family structure. Ever since I can remember,
my mother and father always wanted their children to respect and
help one another. However, these ideals did not stop with our own
family. My Mother told me that everyone on this earth belongs to
one big family, and that it is our duty to respect and help another.
She stated that while our lives may be going well, there is always
somebody who needs our help. This is why, for the past year and
half, I have become involved in a local mentor program that provides
guidance and support for children with disadvantaged backgrounds.
As a mentor, my responsibilities include working with the local
youth to improve decision making capabilities, build conflict resolution
abilities, improve school performance, and build the desire to continue
their education. Hopefully, as a lawyer I will be able to help some
individuals through legal crises while still being able to pay the
The sign at
the military installation that reads "All The Way" has
had a tremendous impact on me. What began as a simple twist of fate
has inspired me to face new challenges and given me the determination
to succeed in all my endeavors. Law School will be a welcome challenge,
one which I plan to face with my arsenal of experience, passion,
dedication, leadership and discipline. I believe that these characteristics
make me a confident, accomplished and promising candidate who would
be an asset to the incoming class, and ultimately to the legal profession.
I am convinced that I have the necessary skills to go "All
the Way" at your institution.
