I had the pleasure of working with Rachel at JD Advising and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Before working together, I had limited knowledge of the application process, but Rachel expertly walked me through it and helped me create a personal statement that earned me multiple full-ride offers. Her expertise and guidance made the entire process a breeze and I couldn’t be more grateful. I highly recommend JD Advising and especially working with Rachel.

– NS, Michigan State, 2021 1L

Rachel is an absolute pleasure and I am incredibly lucky to have worked with her on my statements! She helped me structure my cover letter, resume, diversity statement, and other application materials so that I could best present my story and highlight my strengths to many top-ranked BigLaw firms in the nation. Rachel offered constructive feedback and provided valuable insight during the drafting process. She answered all my questions and was always very responsive and thorough, despite her busy schedule and the number of students she works with. The law firm application process is stressful enough as it is, but I felt at-ease thanks to Rachel! She had a positive attitude and was there to keep me grounded and focused on my goals. Because of her help and support, I have received several offers at national BigLaw firms!

BOTTOM LINE: Rachel goes above and beyond when working with her clients, and motivates them throughout the entire process. Reaching out to her was the best decision I made and I couldn’t be happier with my choice to work with Rachel. I STRONGLY recommend her to anyone who wants to craft an unforgettable application and invest in their legal futures! Thank you, Rachel! You are AMAZING! 10/10 recommend.

JD Advising’s tutoring was extremely helpful during my first semester of law school. The tutoring sessions were great because my tutor, Jonathan, was very personable, and he made me feel comfortable discussing any topics that I was having trouble with. It was clear that he understood the material very well since he was able to simplify some very difficult concepts. Further, I truly believed he was invested in my success.

After working with Jonathan, I earned grades high enough to land a summer associate position at a big law firm as a 1L. Jonathan was great because not only was he well versed in my 1L courses, but he also is a successful lawyer and a graduate of my law school. It was great being able to talk to someone who not only understood the rigor of my 1L classes, but also had proven tips for success in and beyond law school.

– Law Student, 2022-2023

I have been working with Jonathan throughout my 1L Spring semester, and he has been a great help to me in Property & Constitutional Law! We have worked through numerous subjects in these courses and have broken them down into easy-to-grasp concepts and how to apply them in practice, along with honing my outlines in preparation for my final exam. I highly recommend him!

– G.K., Law Student, 2022-2023

Working with Doriel was highly beneficial for preparing for 1L exams. Doriel answered my every question thoroughly and clearly and meticulously clarified complex topics

– Law Student, 2022-2023

Jonathan Demers is a great tutor. Before meeting Jonathan, I was in the dark about how to succeed in law school. After a lackluster first 1L semester, Jonathan immediately helped by solving my most immediate problems with clear steps that would ensure success. He explained concepts that were difficult into simplified, easily digestible, and memorable lectures. He encouraged me whenever I was doubtful and professionally eased my worries always calming me down. Jonathan was a worthy investment to my law school education!

– G.K., Law Student, 2022-2023

My tutor Melissa was very flexible to my needs and interests. She helped me achieve Honors grades in three of my four doctrinal courses of my 1L Fall semester. Very grateful for this opportunity.

– Law Student from Harvard Law School, 2022-2023

My tutor was incredible; he didn’t just answer my questions, he taught me to develop long-term habits from the very beginning that would help me once our sessions ended.

– Law Student from Wayne State University Law School , 2022-2023

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to get personal mentorship and tutoring. It helped me set the foundation of how to manage law school and made me confident to succeed both in and out of the classroom! 

– Law Student from Columbia Law School, 2022-2023

The tutoring program was great for me to get back into the swing of school. After five years working, I appreciated having someone help me to understand the nature of law school and assist in structuring my schedule for the semester and exams. JD Advising helped me to hit the ground running.

– Law Student from the University of Michigan Law School, 2022-2023

I mainly utilized my tutoring sessions for a class I was struggling with and it ended up being my highest grade!

– Law Student from the University of Michigan Law School, 2022-2023

Law school can be an isolating experience, so working with someone who has been through it helps as they can give advice beyond subject material. Unlike commercial courses, JD Advising lets you direct the sessions based on the material you want to focus on. Whether its help with class material, exam prep, or advice on how to pick class schedules or internships, your tutor is there to help you! I personally benefited from being able to talk through the information and hearing it explained differently from the professor.

– Law Student

I am glad that I used JD Advising for my 1L final prep. Heather was very thorough and detail-oriented. She would look over my practice exam answers and identify logical leaps in my analysis. She was also able to guide me through analogizing the exam question with or distinguishing the exam question from the precedents that I read in class. As a first-semester law student who did not really know how to answer exam questions, I certainly benefited from Heather’s tutoring sessions.

– Law Student

I reached out to JD Advising and I was paired with Heather, who was amazing! She provided detailed examples and walked me through each one. This service was so helpful. I would highly recommend these services to anyone in law school, and particularly to 1L’s!

The lectures are amazing: clear and concise! Moreover, they are engaging and to the point. The quizzes are informative and helpful.

– Law School Prep Course Student

I liked how thorough this class was. I appreciated the blend of skills-based lessons and lessons focused on substantive law.

– Law School Prep Course Student

It was a very thorough intro to law school and contained practical tips not found elsewhere.

– Law School Prep Course Student

It was clear, direct, and emphasized the importance of book briefing and to approach law school with the intention of doing well in exams at top of mind throughout. The information provided was valuable.

– Law School Prep Course Student

I was really pleased to see the course split into very accessible units, excellent ‘study’ materials for the quiz, awesome job all around. The curriculum was fantastic for those who have no prior experience in law whatsoever. Other prep courses jump straight in without defining many terms which makes following along tedious and frustrating. JD advising has the best prep material I have come across so far. Thank you so much.

– Law School Prep Course Student

I liked the approachable language, visuals, and step-by-step guidance.  Also, the information was presented in multiple modalities (written, video, and in dialogue) that assisted in comprehension and retention.

– Law School Prep Course Student

I am so glad I ran across JD Advising! The info provided in the course has helped me be a more prepared and thus a more successful law student!

I would highly recommend this class to all law students. The materials are fabulous and can serve as a reference guide for all your law school classes. The instructors were engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed watching all the videos.

Amazing! This course opened my eyes to what the 1L experience will be like and offered many practical and direct tips to do well.

A wonderful overview to boost confidence prior to law school. The LWR Section helped me understand the formatting I would be encountering and prepared me to excel.

This course was amazing and helped a lot with my nerves about starting law school!

This course made me feel so comfortable when I began law school! It provided the essential basics that make all the difference in excelling in law school.

I am so happy to say that I enrolled in and completed this course! I will be starting law school in the fall, and I believe that the tools, tips, and tricks that I learned in this course will be instrumental for my success in my 1L year!

– Law School Prep Course Student

Thank you SO much for making this prep course free. It has been incredibly helpful and I feel much more confident about starting law school in the fall. During a time of many expenses due to law school, I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate that you have made your course free. THANK YOU!

This preparatory class has put me in a much better place than I was before I was introduced to the class. Going into the class, I knew almost nothing about what law school would be like. My expectations came only from word of mouth from friends and family. However, Meagan and Ashley have eased my mind about starting law school now that I have a solid foundation to rely on going into Wayne State Law. This course provides a very comfortable environment to learn. I feel that I have gone from knowing very little about how to succeed as a student of law to gaining an advantage over others who may not have taken such a course in five sessions. These sessions cover all the bases. I learned the ins and outs of how to approach each class and how to use time efficiently to earn the best grades possible. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking an early advantage in law school and to anyone who wishes to learn more about how to be the best law student they can be.

Dear Meagan, Thank you so much for the lessons and advice you have given me. I feel so excited and well-prepared for law school thanks to you. You were patient and supportive throughout the course. It is my blessing to have a mentor like you.

– Law School Prep Course Student

The course helped me feel mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for law school. Instead of feeling the normal sentiments of panic, I am quite calm and not in the slightest overwhelmed to begin my classes, thanks to what I learned in the pre-law classes. This was the best investment and I highly recommend that 1L law students take this course before beginning their legal journey.

My advisor (Rachel) really cares to go the extra mile to make sure that you are prepared and that your application reflects the best version of yourself to law schools. I learned so much from her in this time and could not have pieced together a better application myself. I am so appreciative of Rachel’s attention to detail and the extra efforts she invested in me to increase my chances of getting into my desired schools. I feel lucky to have found JD Advising! 10/10 rating and would HIGHLY suggest this company to anyone seeking an LSAT tutor or law school application help/advising

Rachel was great– I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Her guidance has been invaluable. She is so knowledgeable about the admissions process and was able to provide me complete information that helped me make informed decisions. I really appreciated her ability to be strategic and realistic while still remaining supportive. She responded to my emails quickly (after business hours and on weekends), thoroughly, and thoughtfully. Her guidance made this intense process all the more manageable. I’m so grateful for her help.

Rachel was really professional, caring, and well aware of the requirements needed for my inquiries; even though they were for Canadian schools. She helped me with my CV and my LSAT addendum, and both times she did more than I could even expect.

Now, I feel super confident in my essay. Rachel communicated well and fast. I would recommend her to every prospective law student. She is awesome!

– Personal Statement Review Package #1 Purchaser

My experience with JD Advising was phenomenal. I was on a time crunch to get my applications in and had my personal statement reviewed and edited within days of finding out about JD Advising. Not only was the service timely, but the comments were immensely constructive and easy to understand. I also really appreciated the personalized attention I received, with one on one phone calls that allowed me to ask questions and discuss the feedback. I wish I would have found out about you earlier so that I could have taken advantage of the other pre-law services you offer! Thank you for all your help, I feel so much more confident in my application now.”

“JD Advising was a fantastic resource for both my academic and professional development during my 1L year. I was paired with a tutor who was a great resource during the first few months of my fall semester. As a first-generation student, one-on-one tutoring not only served to break down complex legal concepts but also afforded me the opportunity to learn from a tutor who had excelled during law school. Furthermore, JD Advising provided me with substantial resources during the 1L summer application process and helped me navigate the uncertainty of the first-year job placement.”

—Juan M. Moreno, Columbia Law School

“As a JD Advising Scholar, I was given the opportunity to work alongside an attorney for one-on-one tutoring, and connect with other attorneys that provided guidance and feedback about the profession itself. With so many resources and study-aids provided by JD Advising, I felt as though I had multiple nets to fall back on when I left class feeling confused. My tutor Jonathon was helpful, supportive, and prepared for every session. I would sometimes feel lost, but he would use what I know to guide me to understanding what I don’t. I am very grateful and thankful to be a part of the program. The Scholar program is one of a kind and provides everything a first-year law student would need to prepare them for success.”

— Jin Cho, UC Berkeley School of Law

“JD Advising has had a larger impact on my first year of law school than I could have ever anticipated. I was fortunate to be connected with amazing tutors who not only supported me with what I was experiencing with my academics, but also with the other general trials and tribulations that come with being a first-year law student. I had access to materials that were really strong supplements to help me study and prepare for exams. Most importantly, JD Advising connected me to my two mentors and my mentor firm who have been incredibly supportive. My mentors have taken the time to meet with me in person, introduced me to their colleagues, and bring me on a tour of their office, all of which exposed me to the real life side of a legal career which as a first generation law student I don’t really have exposure to.”

— Carina Thompson, Syracuse University College of Law

— Isaura Mora, University of Michigan Law School

“The JD Advising Scholars Program was instrumental to my early success in law school. I was not only assigned a tutor, but I was also given study aids, invited to exclusive networking events, and paired with a mentor from Skadden (who sponsored my scholarship). By leveraging these resources, I finished my first semester of law school with grades substantially higher than the median in my class. Additionally, the strong connection I had with my mentor, along with my grades, ultimately helped me secure a 1L summer associate position with Skadden in their Los Angeles office! I truly believe that if it wasn’t for the JD Advising Scholars program, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

— Marcus Mello, University of California, Los Angeles School of Law
