Our friends at jdMission, a leading law school admissions consulting firm, have developed a first-of-its-kind law school application workshop to help you improve and accelerate the application process.
During this six-hour course, Mary Adkins—Yale Law School graduate, award winning–playwright and veteran jdMission Senior Consultant—will guide you step-by-step through the process of creating a distinct law school personal statement that will reveal your unique character to the admissions committees. In a classroom environment, you will brainstorm for engaging essay ideas, practice techniques of effective storytelling and write with guided instruction. You will benefit throughout the workshop from direct feedback from both the instructor and your classmates, and after the formal instruction is complete, you will have the option of completing additional one-on-one feedback sessions with your instructor on specific work you developed in the class.
In this class, you will accomplish the following, with direct feedback throughout:
- Brainstorm: Find the right topic for your personal statement or other essay.
- Draft: Complete guided exercises designed to generate your best writing on your chosen topic.
- Hone: Work with peers and the instructor on developing your strongest ideas.
- Plan: Leave with a complete draft of your personal statement, with specific leads on where and how to revise.
The jdMission application workshop will be offered on October 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in New York City.
The application workshop typically costs $599, but Law School Podcaster visitors who register for the course before October 5 will receive a $200 discount.
