You may know us as Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring,
but we are so much more than a tutoring company.
Let us introduce you to Ginsburg Admissions!
One of the programs we are most proud of is our Law School Admissions and Application Assistance. We develop the entire picture of how you will take a law school by storm and become the alumni they are proud to speak about, bringing forth the strengths in each of our clients.
What's amazing about our program is that we're taking students with low GPAs, test anxiety, and past academic dishonesty issues and getting them accepted or waitlisted to top 10 schools. That is because we carefully curate your entire application, from personal statement, to resume, to diversity statements, optional statements, and character & fitness disclosures.
TOP 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LAW SCHOOL
1. Watch out for anyone who tells you they can guarantee your acceptance into a law school. After all, they may only be working with perfect test takers who could already get into the best schools on their own, and if not, then they're lying to you or cheating the system. Only admissions officers make admission decisions.
2. If you have a disability and test with accommodations on the LSAT, that is your private medical information. It is not disclosed by the Law School Admissions Counsel (LSAC) when they submit your application. That would be a violation of your rights under HIPAA law if it were disclosed.
3. Having a disability isn't an advantage or a disadvantage, nor is having a trauma in your past. What matters is how it is presented in your application, if you choose to reveal it. Telling the law school or college of your dreams that you have crippling panic attacks during exams does not necessarily contribute to a persuasive argument in favor of your admission. Leave out personal information that would cause an admissions officer to question your ability to manage the challenges of law school.
4. Personal statements are one of the few game-changer opportunities to take a low chance of admissions or scholarship award and watch it grow. One student we worked with, Jessica, had been rejected from all of her schools before she came to Ginsburg Admissions. We worked through our 'Good, Bad, and Ugly" motivation analysis with Jessica, and connected our results to what she said was driving her to law school and the legal profession. Using this formula, we have helped hundreds of students like Jessica get into schools that the LSAC UGPA/LSAT Calculator indicates are under 20% chances of acceptance. Jessica ended up getting into all of the schools that rejected her, and got scholarship awards to boot!
5. Let’s talk about the past. Academic dishonesty is not a deal-breaker, nor is an open container violation or a DUI. Not long ago, Tulane University let a man convicted of murder attend their law school. No kidding. (He can't pass the bar for ethical reasons, obviously, but law school acceptance is a yes). However, your job on your application is not to re-litigate your case and defend yourself or complain about what you perceive is an unfair ruling against you. Your job is simply to restate the facts within the permitted word limit, and establish that you are now a law-abiding, remorseful future attorney who understands the importance of law and order and accepts your punishment.
