Announcing the Winners of the 2020 7Sage 7K Scholarship

After poring over more than two hundred applications, we’re proud to announce the winner and runners up of the 7Sage 7K scholarship. Every single applicant was deserving, but the seven ten we chose moved us deeply. We think the world will be a better place when they earn their law degrees.

The winner of the 7Sage 7K scholarship is Reo Hayashizaki. (Reo preferred that we use her full name instead of her username.)

The runners up (who preferred that we use their user names) are LexieLSAT, lady stardustt, Pomegranate, lmedr001, chipotlelover888, FJ15, jtweedle, lalvarez16, and one student who wished to remain completely anonymous.

Altogether, we are awarding $8,000, ten LSAT prep packages, and ten admissions consulting or editing packages. The students who had already purchased 7Sage packages received refunds.

To everyone who didn’t win: thank you so much for your applications. We know this was a lot of work in a cruddy time, and we found the choice excruciating. All of you, without exception, will bring something unique and important to the legal profession. You rock.

We’ll open applications for the 2021 7Sage 7k scholarship on August 1, and we encourage you to apply!


The 7Sage 7K Scholarship

At 7Sage, our mission is to make legal education accessible, but talk is cheap and school is expensive. We’re putting our money where our mouth is and offering a series of awards to seven aspiring law students. Our goal is to support aspiring lawyers who will work toward a more just future and to help increase diversity at top law schools, and at least half of the awards will go to under-represented minorities.

The winner will receive a scholarship of $7,000 to defray the cost of a legal education, a pro bono 12-month subscription to 7Sage’s Ultimate+ LSAT prep package, and a pro bono Admissions Consulting package.

One runner-up will receive a scholarship of $1,000, a pro bono 12-month subscription to 7Sage’s Ultimate+ LSAT prep package, and a pro bono Admissions Consulting package.
