Hi everyone! The webinar is up here:


Thank you to everyone who left a comment! The winner of the Edit Once giveaway is Alyssa V!

Note that we picked the winner randomly from the webinar's attendance report, then checked to make sure the winner had left a comment.

We'll probably do another webinar July 10, 11, or 12. Until then!

To enter the edit giveaway lottery:

  1. Take a gander at the admissions course:
  2. Leave a comment here in which you vote on the most useful lesson. (“I vote for Picking Your Personal Statement Topic.”)
  3. We’ll randomly pick a winner from the voters, so long as you attended the webinar.


On Wednesday, June 27, at 9 p.m. ET, I’ll give you a bird’s-eye view of the admissions process. I’ll touch on almost every component of your application and take questions at the end.

:cookie: After the webinar, I’ll randomly select one attendee for a free Edit Once.

:warning: You’ll have to register for this webinar in advance.

→ Please register for the webinar (June 27, 2018 @ 9:00 p.m. ET) here:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Zoom might prompt you to download something before you can join the webinar, so I’d advise you to show up a bit early on Wednesday.

Hope to talk to you there!

    After you sign up, you will receive an email with a URL and a dial-in number, so I think you'll be able to call in from a cellphone!

    I think it was a little over an hour last year. Unless @"David.Busis" is planning to do more, I'm guessing it will be about an hour.

    @"christiem.lawrence" @akistotle Yep—about an hour.

    Hello @"David.Busis" will the webinar be recorded? I may have to step away a bit early and want to pick up where I left off.

    Most helpful lesson: "What affects your chances of getting into law school?"

  • JaejaebinxJaejaebinx Alum Member
    edited June 2018 104 karma

    Does anyone know where we can write the comment about the Admissions course for the giveaway? (P.S. Thanks for the helpful seminar @David!)

    Edit: I really like the Top Law School Requirements section. There are just too many schools I'm planning to apply to and it's such a pain to go to different websites to do research on each school's requirements. Although I know I'd have to double check the requirements, having a handy list is awesome.

    I believe the "Why School X" section is most helpful because it provides valuable advice on showing a school why it stands out in your eyes.

  • sarahwtruesarahwtrue Free Trial Member

    The most helpful lessons for me so far have been the ones in the Letters of Recommendation section.

    I felt that the lesson on Why X is the most helpful. Everyone says to write them, but few places go into detail!

    Thanks, David! This was really helpful and helped relieve some anxiety of the unknown.I found the section on the personal statements (looking for the delta) most helpful. As for the sections available on the admissions syllabus, I found (already listened to) "The What and Why of Personal Statements" helpful!

  • lady macbethlady macbeth Alum Member

    The advice about Early Decision was the most helpful for me!

    Too bad I didn't get to ask a question. Nonetheless I deemed it very helpful - definitely gave me some very useful insight on the admission process overall. Thank you for your time and look forward to participating in your upcoming webinars soon!

    having a well-formatted , searchable database of law schools by rank, LSAT and GPA percentiles is my favorite thing about using this site so far. it works wayyy smoother than the LSAC equivalent, and contains more useful information about app due dates and fees. i know it's not TECHNICALLY a lesson, but it's still a great resource.

    The Q&A session was most helpful- hearing different perspectives from similar conflicts. Particularly, the advice about contacting admissions offices to ask about their protocol on holding applications based on LSAT testing dates.
