personal statement options

Evaluating our own actions objectively, and determining what will “sell” to a third party, can be exceedingly difficult.  That is the reasoning behind the old adage “A lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.” The same challenge presents itself when a student tries to “sell” himself/herself to a law school admission committee. Even students with very impressive credentials struggle writing their personal statements effectively.

In addition to my LSAT Prep teaching experience, I have extensive experience working with prelaw students on their critically important personal statement, including:

  • Assisting countless law school applicants with their personal statement, and helping them make their life story resonate powerfully with law school admission committees.
  • Extensive conversations with law school admission committee members from T-14 law schools, highly ranked regional law schools, and local law schools.
  • Over five years of experience as a member of the advisory committee to Harvard University’s admission committee, interviewing student applicants, and reviewing student applications.
  • My own personal experience with the law school admission process, which helped me get into top-ranked law schools including Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and UCLA.

In addition to all of the above, I have been a practicing lawyer since law school, routinely making persuasive arguments to third parties.  Ultimately, we will be doing the same thing in your personal statement: advocating you to law school admission committees.

My Gold and Silver Personal Statement packages, and my Personal Statement video tutorial, give you exceptionally useful advice on your personal statement.  Please click the course boxes above for more details and to see everything that is included. We deal with every aspect of your personal statement, including:  (1) the initial “brainstorming” work, (2) the creation of the ideal theme, outline, structure and basic components of it, and (3) (with the Gold Package) the precise editing of it, including the personal statement’s all-important “subtext.”

Finally, just like my LSAT Prep courses, you will be working directly with me, the owner of ScoreItUp, and not a part-time or student instructor. Your 1-on-1 meeting(s), the “brainstorming” process, the editing work, and the video tutorial are all done with me.

The prices for the Gold and Silver packages listed above are discounted prices for students taking either (1) one of my live LSAT Prep courses, or (2) my 3-month or 6-month online video course.  You can purchase the Gold Package, without taking a course, for $1,399. You can purchase the Silver Package, without taking a course, for $749.  Please contact me at mark@scoreitup.com if you have any questions.  I look forward to hearing from you!
