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!
This was my third cycle applying and I knew I needed help. Prior to purchasing the full admissions consulting package from 7Sage, in previous cycles, I was either rejected or waitlisted (never admitted) at every school to which I applied. In comes Sarah Cohen from 7Sage to help me with this cycle—today, I deposited at a T-13 school with a full-tuition scholarship during the most competitive admissions cycle to date.
In previous years, I had a story to tell in my personal and diversity statements, but I could not communicate this story effectively. Sarah was patient enough to hear my whole life story (literally) and helped me to craft a narrative that was both true to myself and which positioned me in the best possible light to the admissions committees. When it came to my character & fitness statements (juvenile record containing drug and violent offenses) I was so impressed by Sarah for helping me to frame these issues in context with the rest of my story. My C&F statements became almost a second personal/diversity statement and flowed naturally with the rest of my application. Everything felt cohesive and polished.
Completing great applications is laborious. At times, I felt discouraged because of failure during my previous two cycles, and I was exhausted of all the essays and applications. In comes Sarah… She pushed me to keep on revising my drafts, to research each school and reach out to clinics and professors, and to go above and beyond in every possible way that would give me an edge. I always felt that I had a team in my corner backing me up, and it seemed that Sarah wanted to see me succeed more than I did! On top of that, the relief of not being on my own during this cycle and still being able to submit quality applications while working multiple jobs was priceless.
I really could not have done this without Sarah’s help, and I will be forever grateful. This was the best investment of my life, and it paid off more than 100x over with that full ride at a T-13 school… Thank you Sarah!
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!
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 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!
