I have been admitted to Harvard! I am soooooooooooo happy!
You cannot believe how thrilled I am. The admissions office has contacted me and they are extremely kind to me!
This is really amazing! I am moving to Boston and going to Harvard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kind regards," C, France
I am deciding right now between Harvard and Stanford. Such a hard choice. Do you have any input? I went to
Stanford's admit weekend (and loved it!) but it was on the same weekend's as
Harvard. I don't know if I am crazy to turn Harvard down. What kind of feedback have you gotten from former clients who attended either schools? Let me know and thanks again for all of your help!"
"I got into Yale and I couldn't be more excited. Your
advice was spot on and you were very reassuring throughout the whole process. I
consider you a dear friend. Call me if you are ever in New Haven.
All the best," J, TX
Apologies for the delayed response. First, I would like to say that I had a wonderful experience working with Heike. Her input helped me get some great ideas for topics and also really helped enhance the quality of my writing. So far, the admissions process has gone very well. I have received acceptances from
Chicago, NYU, Duke, Georgetown, and George Washington. Harvard has placed me on hold status. I am still waiting for decisions from Yale, Columbia, Virginia, Penn, Michigan, and Northwestern. I could not be happier with how the process has gone so far.
Thanks for taking the time to check in!" R, MD
"Hi Laura, I have some great news. I wanted to call to thank you personally for all your help but I
understand that you have a very busy schedule and I don't have your number. I was accepted to
Michigan State College of Law.
I am so excited and can't thank you enough that I was able to get into my top choice. You're tips really made a difference." G, MA
"Hi Kim --
Amy was very helpful. She worked hard during our time together to maximize the positive impact her input had on my application package.
I'm convinced she helped me not only get into my top target school, but also to secure a
$13,000 per year scholarship, and I'm most grateful for her honest and thoughtful guidance.
If you do a satisfaction survey or anything, I'd be glad to do it, and feel free to use my first name and a quote for a testimonial if you'd like -- I can also give you a different quote if you'd like.
Thanks for the follow-up." R, IL
"Heike is an extremely helpful and valuable consultant. I am 100% satisfied in her work to date. She is obviously very
knowledgeable and experienced and knows how to convey that experience. I appreciate her honest assessments and feedback thus far.
Heike has verified my top school choice is within reach and that my alternates are appropriate. My resume is completed and I used her feedback
to select the 2 best candidates for letters of recommendation. I have met with each and they are in the final stages of writing the letters.
I have begun filling out the basic information on the LSAC website for my applications.
My last major hurdle is the personal statement which I am working on presently and will be submitting a rough draft soon for her review. This is
turning out to be much more challenging than I imagined but I am confident that the feedback provided by Heike will help me through this stage.
Again, I am 100% satisfied and I won't hesitate to recommend your company to any of my friends." H, PA
Susan has been the best! I'm glad I decided to work with her.
As of now, I've been admitted to one of my "reasonable" schools and rejected from a "reach." I still have about a dozen or so schools I'm waiting to hear from. I think I may have a little bit of time with Susan left...and I might schedule a phone call with her depending on how the rest of the process ends up.
Thanks very much." C, VA
Heike has been great, I appreciated her help and I am really happy with her advice.
Thanks for checking in." W, NC
First of all, my sincere apologize for the long delay. 2011 is running really fast and I did not have the right moment to write to you the
feedback about Amy that you deserve.
I would like to thank you (as Director of Operations) and Amy for the great job you have done, especially Amy. She was great,
very professional, attentive, straight to the point, definitely helping me to pass through the exhausted application processes. My profile is not
quite simple and I think Amy managed very well in emphasize the right points. Furthermore, she handles all this process in a very affective way, acting
serenely in my moments of anxiety.
It is very hard elaborating any criticism about her and right now I don't have any point to stress out. I don't know if law schools give
feed back to the applicant afterwards, but if they give, I will be more than happy sharing with you those to check if our strategy was correct.
I know that the pool of good applicants is huge, but I really hope that I can be accepted in some of Law Schools that I applied. Now is fingers crossed!
If someone asks me about your services, I absolutely recommend you and Amy. If you have any other question about my experience, please let me know.
Thank you very much!" P, NY
I can not thank you enough for all of your help during this process. You have not only been great but have also been constantly available and given me unparalleled advice. I really appreciate just how above and beyond you have gone and the ways in which you have aided me through this entire process.
Of course, I will let you know when I make my final decision and will update you when I hear from Cornell and when I hear back from Fordham regarding money.
Beyond this, I wanted to let you know that if you ever need a recommendation to other students, to the company or for your own personal use it would be my pleasure to write something.
Thanks so much for everything and I hope to talk to you soon!" A, NY
Laura did a great job helping me and I am definitely a better candidate now then I was a few days ago. I sent her a ton of
material and filled out the questionnaire. Laura put the time into reviewing the material to make the consultation highly focused and seemed to
really care about me. I really appreciate all her help as well as David's assistance.
Toward the completion of my applications in two weeks, I may need to have an additional summary telephone conversation with Laura.
We'll be in touch. Thank you for your help.
Best," E, NJ
"HEIKE, LOOK WHAT I JUST GOT [acceptance to Northwestern]!!!!!!! I AM OVER THE MOON!!! I SERIOUSLY HAVE TO
THANK YOU BECAUSE I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO IT WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!"
I hope you have been doing well. I'm sure things are busy for you again as application time quickly approaches. Have you made your move back to LA yet? Anyways, sorry for not emailing you sooner - for some reason I thought I had!
So I will be attending UNC Law in the fall. I honestly could not be happier with my decision! I actually got a small scholarship from them and am working on getting in-state tuition for my 2L and 3L year. I visited with my parents during the long weekend and showed them around and found a nice apartment. That trip definitely reconfirmed my love for Chapel Hill and UNC Law! You were right in your email back to me once I had gotten in back in January – it's the perfect fit for me. Ironically, my cousin is starting at UNC for his MBA next year too.
Remembering back to the fall two years ago, I know I would never have expected this result. I can't thank you enough for your help over this long process. Please have any of your future clients who are thinking about Carolina get in touch with me if they have any questions or concerns.
Take care!" L, NJ
I hope your vacation in Mexico was relaxing. I am sure it was. I have not talked to you in a while so I thought say Hi. I am writing my letters of intent to the schools and sending them today through e-mail. I have been accepted to
Appalachian, Western New England, Widener, Phoenix, Charlotte, and Mississippi, and NSU. Well I guess my letter was not good enough to make it on your company's web site (Testimonials). Oh well, its purpose was served because it brightened your day. Well let me know how you are and be well."
"I got in off of the GW Law waitlist! So going there. Thanks for your help!"
"Hello Heike and Chris,
Just wanted to let you know that I was admitted at Tulane Law and also at their School of Social Work so hopefully this fall I will begin my JD/MSW dual degree.
I was also accepted at Syracuse and Univ. South Carolina, with a 50% academic scholarship. Thanks for all of your help!"
I am writing to let you know that I was ACCEPTED to University of Miami School of Law last week! I am so excited and grateful to you, as you know this was my top choice. I cannot imagine a better outcome to what has been a truly trying year! I was originally put on "hold" (i.e. waitlisted) . I wrote (what I consider to be) a very convincing letter of continued interest and, two weeks later, I got my acceptance notification! I just paid my full seat deposit and have even begun the recommended summer reading- I'm really determined to excel there!
Thank you SO SO much for all your help along the way. You not only assisted me apply in an incredibly short, rushed amount of time, but also helped me miraculously get into my first choice!
Even though I have my seat at Miami for next year, I wanted to let you know the outcomes with the other schools as well. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!
Best," K, FL
I just got an email... I'm IN at Tulane!!!!!! :) I'm going to be traveling a lot the next few days (Bombay tomorrow for the first time!) but wanted to shoot you a quick email to let you know. First thing my mom said was "Email Amy, she'll be very happy!" I know I definitely am, especially to hear back SOO early! I couldn't have done it without your help!
Hope all is well!" T, MS
I have been very impressed by the quality and effectiveness of advice Heike has given me. It has improved my application significantly and improved my chances of getting into Harvard.
If unsuccessful with my LLM application, I will most definitely be using Heike's services for my MBA applications in 2010.
Thanks again" A, Australia
I just wanted to let you know that I received a wonderful message yesterday afternoon from Dean Post at
Penn Law letting me know that I have been admitted to the class of 2013! I am so elated, words cannot express! I was wondering if you would have time tonight for a phone call? Hope to speak with you soon.

Greetings from California! How are you? I hope you are doing well. It has been quite a while since we last communicated but I always remembered you. You were completely
instrumental in getting me into law school and especially in considering the law school I was destined to be at three years ago!
I graduated this past May from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego and am presently studying for the February 2010 CA State Bar exam. I want to send you my
graduation announcement but I didn't have your address at hand. Could you e-mail me back with your home or office address?
I also want to send you my graduation program and one of my law school's magazines. The program lists most of my law-school related awards (I received an AmJur in
four courses, was selected as the law school's Outstanding Law Graduate, and earned honors in Moot Court plus other awards) and the magazine has a one-page article on my job (Summer Associate
and Law Clerk-Immigration Specialist with Gordon & Rees LLP) while in law school.
You were totally correct that I would love being at Thomas Jefferson School of Law! I had the best time at law school – the professors were wonderful to me, the school
administrators were extremely supportive and the academic/employment opportunities suited my career path. I am so grateful that I want to this particular law school.
I know I can never thank you enough but I want to send you my graduation announcement and program and law school magazine as a token of my deepest appreciation for advising me
and being supportive of my dream.
Once again, thank you very much for all of your help! I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards," V, CA
I wanted you to be the first to know that I just got accepted to the
University of Denver with a scholarship! Of course, I'm still waiting on all
of the others. But, at least I know that I won't have to rely on any safety schools and I got in somewhere. Your guidance was priceless. I couldn't have done all of this
without you. I'll let you know what is happening as I hear. But, getting my first acceptance was kind of exciting.
Have a Wonderful Holiday!" A, CA

Happy Holidays!! I was just checking in to say hi. I wanted to fill
you in on my success for law schools. Currently I have been accepted
to Case Western, Capital University, Missouri and John Marshall. At
this point I am looking to visit then hopefully attend Case Western up
in Cleveland. I just want to thank you for all your help and
assistance, I greatly appreciate everything you have done!!"
"Dear Admissions Consultants,
I wanted to write Admissions Consultants to thank you and Heike for your services. Heike is not only great at consulting, she is also a great person to work with. I have to be
honest, at first I was not sure if I wanted to spend the money for a consultant, but after the fact, this was one of the best investments I have ever made. Heike guided me
through the whole process and fixed multiple errors on my part. She has also always been very honest and prompt in her assessments. I believe I was a tough nut to crack,
so I have to give credit where credit is due. I did not have much going for me from the very beginning. Not only have I been out of school for 8 yrs with no law experience
but I have also pled guilty to a 2nd degree felony, couple that with a 151 LSAT and a 3.04 GPA from my graduating school, my chances getting accepted anywhere were bleak,
I thought. Because of Heike's guidance I have been accepted to 3 schools, wait listed at 2, and more to come. Most importantly I have been accepted to my top choice school,
Widener University. So I just wanted to say, 'Thank you Heike'."
"Today was our first day of orientation [at University of
Colorado]. I am excited and less concerned about my LSAT discrepancy. I have realized that law school is pretty tough for everyone. It is going to be difficult, but I feel my chance of succeeding is as good as anyone else's. The more I hear from different people I have met through the decision process the more I am convinced that I made the best decision for me. I'm totally fired up for law school!
Your help was invaluable! I couldn't have gotten into all the schools I did without you!
I hope your year has started out on a positive note! Even though I have already started school, would it be okay to e-mail you on occasion with a question or concern? I realize that my school has great resources, but sometimes I value an outside opinion. I always enjoy hearing from you!
Thanks For Everything," T, CO
Thanks for your email. So far so good. I was recently accepted into Boston College Law and am still waiting to hear back from GW Law - my first choice.
Susan has been incredible. My numbers are respectable, but on the lower end of the scale. I view my acceptance into BC Law as evidence of the power of my supporting materials and a credit to Susan's gudiance and edits.

I just wanted to let you know I was accepted to Rutgers this afternoon. Thank you so much for your advice and what was more assistance than I expected from the website, it was such a massive relief knowing I was submitting the best application I could.
Thank you again!!" G, NJ
I thought I would let you know that I will be attending Georgetown in the fall. I was invited to interview, and ended up doing a last minute switch to ED. I just found out today, so I will definitely be going there. Also, I got engaged! Thanks again for all your help and support, I'll let you know if anything else comes up.
Best," J, TX
"Thanks Kim, I have gone ahead and made my purchase via internet. I must let you know from a customer service standpoint I am seriously impressed with the ease and quick turn around of your service."
Heike was amazing. She did more time than she was paid for. She
helped me make my lengthy and wordy personal statements into a concise,
effective reflection of myself. She was also amazing with my resume. The way she
did the hour was very effective since I first emailed her my stuff, she
commented on my PS and we went over it together to cut out a page. So basically,
she showed me how to present myself in a concise, effective manner, something
that a law student must be able to do. Thanks so much! Have a great day! Best,"
Just wanted to share some great news with you, which is that I was recently
accepted at Michigan. I considered this a bit of a "reach" school, so it
really is quite exciting. Michigan actually seems like a terrific fit for me.
At any rate, I wanted to thank you again for helping me to put together a strong

I got into Harvard!!!!!!! I had my doubts, but you were absolutely right.

you helped with my application. I can confidently say that this would not be
happening if it were not for you. Hope to tell you more good news soon." M, FL
I'll definitely be going to Notre Dame, no matter what.
Thank you SO MUCH for all of your help during the admissions cycle.
My entire family says this is the best investment we've ever made."
Working with Derek over the past year on law school applications has been nothing less than a stellar experience.
His competence in the law school admissions process is absolutely unrivaled. That fact is borne out in the results of my
application cycle: I was admitted to at least 13 schools in the top 30, with more than 5 of those in the top 10.
I am exceptionally pleased to note that I will attending the University of Pennsylvania in the fall; this is
in no small measure directly related to Derek's help. I give my highest recommendation both to Derek and to
AdmissionsConsultants." A, PA
I really can't express how grateful I am. Everything you've done to get me into
law school paid off and regardless of the outcome of my other apps, I'll be
going to a great law school. I know I couldn't have gotten in there without you,
your help was an invaluable resource and was easily the best investment I've
made on my journey to law school.
Thank you so much!" J, CA

I am very glad I found Admissions Consultants. I have a strong academic
background and when I start to get denials after denials I started to panic and
I knew then that something must have gone wrong in my application. I started to
get extremely nervous and feared the worst because I was like a person groping
in the dark, trying to make sense of all that has gone wrong.
I was very thankful to be assigned Amy as my consultant. Through her experienced
eyes she very quickly discovered the errors and oversight in my applications and
she offered very useful advice on how to rectify the errors. Knowing where I
have erred calmed me down a lot; and despite knowing that it is probably too
late to do anything about my applications, I feel more confident knowing that it
wasn't anything wrong with me that my applications were rejected - only that I
have not presented it in the best light to show myself as a competitive
I highly recommend Amy as a consultant. She is highly experienced and gives
sound and practical advice. On top of that she is warm, helpful and persuasive.
She also possesses high counseling qualities that help in soothing and
reassuring a panic stricken applicant like me.

I wanted to take a moment this afternoon to convey my praises about Mark.
I worked with Mark this year as I reapplied to law school, and I cannot
effectively state how extraordinary his guidance has been. I was neurotic and
frazzled throughout the process, but Mark was GREAT about reassuring me and
helping me keep my head when I seemed certain to lose it. I was extremely
fortunate to have gained admission to some phenomenal law schools. Never in my
wildest dreams would I have imagined that one of the most agonizing decisions of
the application process would be deciding between UPenn and Virginia
(with scholarships at both schools!).
Thank you for pairing me with Mark last summer! I am extremely grateful!"
"I was lucky enough to work with Heike. She was extremely
dedicated and encouraging. However, I'm grateful for her honest assessment as
well. She helped me with numerous drafts for my personal statement and gave me
very useful feedback on how to highlight my strengths.
She is an expert in what she does. Heike was always prompt with her replies and
this was tremendously helpful for rolling deadline purposes. She helped
alleviate the experience of an extremely difficult process to make it a lot less
stressful. I was able to get into a reach school and I cannot be happier. I
would highly recommend Heike to anyone applying to law school for the best
results!" S, NJ

I am really still interested in practicing corporate law and I wanted to know what you thought about how hard it is to get a job in another state besides the one you graduate from. Let me know when you get a chance. Thanks again for everything, your help throughout the process has been amazing!
All of our hard work paid off--THANK YOU!! I have also been accepted to
Duke, Michigan, and Georgetown...still waiting to hear from Yale and
Harvard but Berkeley is my first choice and I am so excited! Thank You!"
I thought I would just provide an update for you. I am actually really excited because I just got OFF the waitlist at the University of Virginia. I really think that I got in because, after taking your advice, I went to go visit
Virginia and had a great meeting with the dean. Thank you for your help, and I will keep you update with any more decisions.
Warm Regards," N, CT
"Thanks Kim! I am so excited!! I definitely could not have done it [acceptance to
Northwestern] without Heike though, she was
great to work with. I owe it to her."
I was attending a law school and was feeling frustrated. I decided to
apply as a transfer student and was accepted at a school that was
probably above my pay grade, but a great fit. Amy helped me draft a
personal statement that touched on the highlights of my application,
bringing them together in a way that would speak to admissions
Realistically, applying to law school without the perspective of a
professional is a mistake. It is too competitive and there is too much
at stake to not consult someone with experience. With that said, I
would encourage anyone considering law school to talk to Amy. Working
with Amy was a pleasure and quickly paid dividends.

I just wanted to thank you again for all your help and let you know that I was accepted to
GW, Penn, Virginia, and Duke. I know they are all great schools, but I am having trouble deciding where to go. If you have opinions about any of them I would greatly appreciate your insight!
Thanks again." J, NY
I just wanted to send a note to thank you again for all your help and patience during this whole admissions process. Thanks to you, I'll be starting Tulane in the fall. Without your help, I would have never thought of applying there! Thanks again for everything. I'm looking forward to starting school in the fall."
"Not only did Derek impart to me the knowledge and know-how I needed to make my applications and essays as polished as possible, he consistently gave me large amounts of his personal time to walk me through various issues and problems I needed resolved promptly. Derek guided me through some tough decisions; all the while being ultimately concerned with my personal well being. I wouldn't have been admitted to
Georgetown or received a substantial scholarship to Vanderbilt (where I will attend next semester) without his help and guidance. Thanks so much, Derek."
I am happy to report that my transfer applications were accepted at both George Washington and UVA. I wanted to
thank you again for all your help and support throughout this process - I know that you have gone above and beyond for me, and I *deeply* appreciate it.
Thank you *so* much. If there's anything I can do to repay the favor, please let me know. I hope your summer is going extremely well,
and I wish you all the best.
"I am soooooooooooooo happy!! I got in, I got in. The dean of Georgetown even wrote by hand a letter to me, it was short, but still it soo reassuring and I feel so proud of myself right now.
I just wanted to so how thankful I am for your help...
Thank you again. I am so glad that I got to work with you."
I decided to go to Yale, and I'm thrilled!
Thank you so much for your help. I never would have tried for Yale if you hadn't suggested it. I would have applied to Stanford as a reach and not gotten in, and
who knows where I would have ended up? But instead I'm going to Yale.
I guess I can deal with three New England winters for that!" S,
I need to thank you for your assistance in my law school application process. Though it is still early in the game and I have yet to hear from 4 law schools out of 18, I was admitted to Catholic U, LSU, SUNY Buffalo and Alabama-Tuscaloosa with a 3/4 merit scholarship. I have been admitted to the waitlist of American U, U Florida, Loyola-Chicago, George Mason, Tennessee and U Maryland School of Law. Though I will try to thank you via email as soon as I have the complete list of acceptances/rejections at hand, please know that I thank you now for your guidance in filling out my application and choosing the best approach for my essays.
Regards," M, Italy
Your advice was instrumental in helping me apply to law school and improve my essay and resume. I wanted to inform you that I was recently accepted off the waitlist to Loyola Marymount – one of my top choices. It also happens to be the one school that you suggested I add to my initial list after our consultation.
Thank you very much for all your help."
I hope you are well and enjoying your summer. I thought you might enjoy an update as per my law school status.
I honestly cannot thank you enough for all of your help. With your help I was accepted to six law schools.
You have been a tremendous resource and a wonderful guide. Please be well. I will certainly keep in touch.
