What kind of feedback do you provide on essays and resumes?
We take a macro and micro approach to editing each document. In doing so, we provide line-by-line feedback on all of your work, along with suggestions on overall tone, flow, and format.
How many edits come with each package?
Every package comes with at least one edit. Additional edits are available with higher-level packages.
Can I add on another edit after I purchase my first package?
Yes. If you’d like to upgrade to a second or third edit, you will only be charged the difference between those packages (Package #1 to #2 or Package #2 to #3) rather than the price of an entirely new package.
Will I work with multiple admissions consults on different parts of my application?
No. You’ll be working one-on-one with an admissions expert who will remain with you throughout the entire application process. Your advisor expert will not switch based on availability. Law schools review applications in a holistic manner and we believe the same approach should be taken to your application preparation. You will only be assigned to one admissions expert for all of your needs to ensure that all of your application documents are comprehensive, consistent, and complementary to one another.
Do I need the 15-minute consultation?
The purpose of the 15-minute consultation is to get to know you better as a law school candidate, answer any questions you may have and further explain the feedback provided to you. You can choose to have the 15-minute call before you get started, after a review is finished, anytime during the writing and review process, or not at all. Some clients consult with their admissions expert at the very beginning of their work together in order to strategize next steps and guide the direction of an essay before it’s finished. Other clients already have their essay complete and utilize the 15-mintue call to discuss changes made and details of how to polish their application further.
I don’t live local to JD Advising, can you still help me?
Yes. All of our prelaw application assistance work is done over the phone or email.
How do you make the changes?
We edit your document directly in Microsoft Word using track changes. You can then go through it and accept/reject each edit and comment. We will discuss these changes with you via email or over the phone if there are any questions.
Can I receive work back before the 48-hour period if I have an immediate deadline?
We work on your timeline! If you’re working against a fast-approaching deadline, we’ll make every effort to have it back to you as soon as possible.
When is the best time to get application assistance services?
We can help you anytime! For those that are just considering a career in law, we can help you navigate what you need to do to prepare. For this, you’d want to reach out to us about two years before you plan to apply to adequately prepare for the LSAT and your other application components.
What kinds of applicants do you work with?
Our clients are as varied as the law school application pool. We’ve worked with everyone from first-generation college students who are completely unfamiliar with the process to applicants who come from a long family lineage of lawyers!
We’ve worked with former professors, athletes, professional musicians, and those with no prior work experience at all. Some of our clients are entering law school right after undergrad (sometimes even graduating in May and starting law school later that month!). Others have decades of academic and professional experience having completed multiple master’s degrees and Ph.D. programs!
What schools do your clients go to?
Our #1 goal is to help an applicant get admitted to their dream school. Sometimes this includes a top 14 law school in the country and other times it’s a local school offering a full-tuition scholarship for all three years. Other times, it’s both! Our clients have gone on to elite universities across the country, big and small.
If you plan to apply to law school in the next year, we suggest reaching out 1-3 months (or more if possible) before you plan to apply. This allows you ample time to brainstorm, write, edit, and polish multiple essays and documents without being rushed.
