    I used 7sage during the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. I was a splitter with a high lsat score and a competitive, but below median, GPA for the schools I was targeting, mainly the T14 and the T6. My consultant Jocelyn Glantz and the rest of the 7sage team worked with me through dozens of essays drafts that allowed my app to stand out and have the impact it needed when it went to review by admissions committees, and they did for a price far more affordable than their peer firms in the law school admissions consulting industry. In the end, I was admitted at four t14 schools, two of them in the top 6, and am attending Columbia Law School this upcoming fall. 7sage was pivotal in helping me achieve that outcome, and was worth every single penny I paid for the service!

    I worked with Ethan Madore and his help was tremendous. I didn’t think I would need much help beyond grammar issues because I knew what I was going to write. I was wrong. Ethan helped me restructure my essay and make it way more concise and focused. I would never realize how ineffective the original essay was as an personal statement without seeing the final result. Ethan is a savvy writer and is responsive to my very specific questions. I highly recommend him. If you can digest his suggestions, reflect on your own writings, and ask meaningful questions, you benefit quite a lot from Ethan’s expertise.

    I applied during the 2020 – 2021 admissions cycle, and I purchased the “Admissions Consulting” package. The help was worth every penny, and I am blown away by the many incredible acceptances that I was able to receive. I worked with Aaron Thier and Gail Dauer, both of whom were phenomenal — they were both so knowledgeable, helpful, and kind, and they were able to provide tons of constructive feedback and identify weaknesses in my essays that I had failed to consider. In addition, it was with both of their help that I was able to transform the initial, rather generic draft of my Personal Statement into a much more intimate and specific story that revealed my character and motivations. I am confident that writing this stand-out personal statement with their help was one of the reasons that I got accepted to many of my top choices — among them Harvard Law, where I will be attending this fall. I honestly could not recommend the 7Sage admissions consulting service enough, and it has been the best investment I’ve made in my life so far. Think of this service not as a “purchase”, but rather an “investment” into yourself and your legal education — arguably one of the most important and long-lasting investments you could make!

    I had the most amazing experience working with Tony Andrews on my personal statement, and I couldn’t recommend him enough! He provided me with thorough and focused feedback, and he really understood the vision I had for the statement and helped me bring it to life. I feel much more confident about it than I would have otherwise, and I am so glad I did it. I would recommend Tony’s amazing service to anyone looking for help!

    EmmaJean and Tajira were absolutely wonderful. They definitely made a difference in my outcomes. EJ is literally the best person ever in every possible way. I got into basically every top school, including SLS, HLS, Chicago, and others, despite having an LSAT below their medians. It’s definitely because of EJ 100%. Request her for sure.

    Jonathan Gharraie has been so incredibly helpful helping me craft a personal statement. He took the time to get to know me and my story and ensured my voice would not be lost throughout the process.

    Writing the PS seemed very daunting at first and I was very overwhelmed with the sheer amount of ideas I felt I needed to include. Jonathan helped me parse through what was really important. I remember once, he said something so profound (paraphrasing): as a writer, sometimes your favorite line is the one that needs to go; however, if you are able to write something as good as that line, then you can write something even better in the future. With this insight, I was able to write a PS I’m very proud of.

    Jonathan was also readily available to video chat and talk with me whenever I needed advice on edits. Working with him reduced my anxiety about my app and reassured we could get it done in time. I can’t recommend him & 7sage’s service enough!

    I applied during the 2020-21 admissions cycle and purchased the Unlimited Editing package. Adrienne Raphel was awesome to work with! She gave me detailed and insightful feedback on each draft of my essay, which I think really helped me create a genuine and interesting personal statement. I know that it was partly due to the help of 7Sage that I was admitted to my dream school–Harvard Law–even with a GPA below their 25th percentile!

    TL;DR: If you can, work with Brian Booker and Brigitte Suhr, and purchase the full Admissions Consulting package.

    I had an incredibly rewarding—and, honestly, fun—experience working with Brian and Brigitte. I’m so thankful to have had experts with such impressive backgrounds and considerable experience by my side as I crafted my essays (Brian has a Ph.D. in English as well as an MFA; Brigitte has a JD from UVA and worked for their admissions team as well).

    I found their experience and talents helped balance my application and led me to outperform my numbers—because of their support I’ll be attending a T14 law school and received many other admissions results that I couldn’t believe, including from HLS!

    Honestly, my experience was so good that I almost asked them both to review this post before I hit “submit” (of course, it’s clear that I didn’t enlist their help because this has been a bit long winded and more dry that I’d hoped—something Brian and Brigitte would never let happen).

    While I’m confident that any member of the 7Sage team will make the admissions process much easier and much more enjoyable, I can say with 100% certainty that if you’re fortunate enough to work with Brian and Brigitte, you’ll be in excellent hands.

    Best of luck to all!

    Lee Cole was an absolute wonder to work with! The corrections were great and really helped– but that’s not why Lee was so great, since that’s really what one expects. What I didn’t expect– and what really made this spectacular– was the uplifting messages they would put into the emails. Those built my confidence up to where I’ve applied at some reach schools I wasn’t going to initially, and I have had amazing success. I know LSAT and GPA are the main factors, but the personal notes written on acceptance letters almost unanimously referenced the personal statement– the same one made infinitely better by Lee!

    I am beyond grateful to have worked with Meghann Banacki in a particularly competitive cycle. 
    Meghann made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. She seemed genuinely interested in my story and helped me craft a coherent narrative that was apparent throughout every component of my application. She was very flexible, thorough with her feedback, and respectful of my opinions. I am confident that working with Meghann and following her advice gave me an edge in this cycle. Thanks to her, I will be attending Columbia Law with a fantastic scholarship! 

    I hope some of you have the chance to work with her. She truly is amazing!

    I cannot recommend Dawn Corrigan and Jenifer Godfrey enough. Having tried to apply on my own once before, I was really hoping for a strong support system that could help me navigate the stress, scheduling, and expectations that come with applying to law school. Dawn and Jenifer edited and guided me through countless revisions to my Personal Statement, while always encouraging authenticity and loyalty to my story and identity as is. They kept me focused and encouraged even when I did not know how to proceed with certain parts of my application or certain essays. Dawn and Jenifer played a huge role in compiling an application that was successful the second time around and even resulted in a generous financial package I never thought I would receive. It was always clear how incredibly experienced they were in this field, but I am so grateful for their heart to support and create the best possible application WITH the applicant!

    I worked with Aaron Thier on my personal statement and other optional essays and the experience was beyond anything I could have imagined. I have often been someone that preferred to keep my work to myself and not ask for feedback, so I was a going into this as a little bit of a newbie in this realm. Aaron is incredibly talented and what I appreciated above all, was his quick identification and ability to protect my personal voice. I ended up reading his book Mr. Eternity, which I recommend if you are into philosophical questions embedded in a beautiful and highly intelligent prose, and realized just how deep his understanding of language and voice are.

    As others have noted, considering the level of effort and investment expended on every other part of the application, it only makes sense to consider an investment in your essay writing just as essential. In my case, Aaron was instrumental in giving me the confidence I needed to take my essays to the next level. I had provided a series of ideas for my PS and I was surprised by the one he recommended exploring. Once I had a first draft, I started to understand the potential he had seen in it and totally bought into what I originally considered underwhelming. My PS turned out really well, and I absolutely loved how Aaron made sure that my voice was always front and center. This really goes to show how valuable an experienced and talented eye are in this process.

    If you are looking for someone to write your essays, this could not be any further from that (I also highly discourage that approach, since the only way to show your true self in a sea of numbers, medians, and rankings, is to make the essay writing process your own). I initially feared that would be the case and I would end up having to ‘protect’ my writing in some way. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with the mastery with which Aaron was able to guide me, make me feel confident in my writing, and prompt me to reevaluate certain passages or stylistic choices in a seamless manner that did not overpower my own process.

    On an interpersonal level, Aaron was awesome to work with. He was professional, enthusiastic, always seemed invested, was very quick to respond (even too quick!), and very friendly. All in all, I cannot recommend this enough. In an very competitive cycle, your essays are what is going to separate you from the pack. Having someone as intelligent and experienced as Aaron help you find and showcase your voice is invaluable.

    I bought Edit Once and worked with Nora Miller and all I can say is — WOW, her help was invaluable. She was incredibly thorough and thoughtful with her review, providing a sentence-level edit to tighten and revise each element, while also giving me three pages of extensive thoughts on how to restructure and reorient the whole essay to more clearly bring the narrative arc out. I was blown away by her attention to detail and ability to think creatively about my essay in such a smart way. Can’t recommend her and this service enough!

    I worked with Susannah who was an absolute blessing during this process. She edited countless versions of my personal statement and Why X School essays, she was happy to talk whenever I was stuck, she provided quick feedback, and she made sure my applications were flawless. My LSAT score was below my dream school’s 25th percentile, and I truly don’t think I would’ve been accepted without her guidance. She saw my strengths and helped me articulate them, and I’m proud of every essay I submitted. While the admissions consulting package is expensive, it was worth every penny. Thank you Susannah, I’m so grateful!

    Stepping into the game of law school admissions as an international and a more mature applicant, I knew I needed professional help in navigating the process and curating a compelling application package. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with Jacob Baska and Tony Andrews, who have assisted me in ways beyond my expectation.

    With more than a decade of experience in the field of admissions, Jake helped me build my school list, identified gaps in my application essays which I could strengthen, suggested what addenda I might need to include to cover all the bases, and most importantly make sure that I submit all my applications on time! (I’m very indecisive and tend to drag things out) He always returned with feedback in less than 24 hours and would never hesitate to hop on a call to answer any questions that I had.

    Reducing 20+ years of my life into a two-page PS seemed impossible at first. What Tony did was not only textual improvements for my writing, he actually helped me parse my tangled ideas, push my limit, and find my voice in my narration. Through multiple rounds of editing and polishing, he helped me distill my life-changing moment into an exciting 800-word piece.

    From start to end, Jake and Tony gave me personalised advice and support. They genuinely care for students’ success. Law school admissions can be very stressful, but I’m so glad to have Jake and Tony to rely on. I started my admissions process as a new immigrant in this country, unsure about where I might be heading. Here I am six months after, thrilled to start law school with a generous scholarship in a city that I love — all made possible by 7Sage!
