Just to give you an update, I just got an acceptance letter from Michigan today. I just wanted to let you know and to thank you again for all of your help since I know I went back and forth with you on my personal statement, my resume, my optional statements, etc. a ridiculous number of times. Although I feel my numbers were competitive I definitely think they were far from auto-admit numbers and I feel your input contributed strongly in them making such a fast decision [one month] regarding acceptance. Thank you so much for all of your help."  E, Wisconsin

"Hi Heike! I just wanted to let you know that I got my acceptance letter from Michigan today! I'm thrilled. Thank you again for all of your help. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks!"   V, Michigan

"I want to thank you for all of your guidance and help with this process. I know it's your "job" to do that, but it was a pleasure working with you and I felt like it was not just a job to you. Very reassuring."  S, Massachusetts

"Renee greatly exceeded my expectations. I had a score on the LSAT that was 10 points lower than the average at Boalt Hall but thanks to a well put together package, I was accepted."  M, California

"Hey Heike,

Thought I'd let you know that Georgetown and UVA have sent acceptances. Also, a number of schools now have commented that they liked my essay, Georgetown saying actually a good few words about it and my interests in the margins of the letter. So, thank you for all of your help with the essay, it's apparently paying off quite well with the top 14. :) Hope you're doing well!"  S, Colorado

"Hey Mark --

Thank you so much for your quick return on the personal statement. I am glad you think it is effective, I was worried it sounded like incoherent rambling. You were right -- you are very good at making personal statements succinct and cohesive!"  J, Alabama


So this is it. I've just moved down to DC and paid my tuition deposits to Georgetown and I am ready to start.

Thank you so much for all your help. I really never would have thought to apply here if it weren't for your suggestion. I hope you and your family have a great summer. I'm sure when school starts, I'll start blaming you for getting my into law school in the first place, but in all seriousness your help was indispensable!

Cheers & THANK YOU!!!"  C, Pennsylvania

"Thanks again for all your help and effort. I really appreciate it, and I believe the result of your consultation has greatly helped me earn my admissions to law school."  J, Massachusetts

"Given Reneeís background and the schools that are listed on your website, I was surprised that she was knowledgeable about regional part-time evening programs in New York."  K, New York

"G-Town looks great. Heike, I've already been accepted to more law schools than colleges! Cheers & THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP"  R, Pennsylvania

"I just wanted to let you know that I've decided to go to Brooklyn Law School. They've given me a $15,000 scholarship. I know I wouldn't have made it through this process without all your help. You told me from the beginning that it was going to be tough, and I am thankful for your kindness and realistic assessment of my chances. Again Renee, thank you so much! I am and have been so grateful for all your help. You really helped get me through this process! I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying the spring weather. Thanks again!"  W, New York

"Hello Mark, I hope you have been well. I've finished applying to all of the schools I had intended to apply to. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all of your help during this process. You really did make it all much easier and I'm confident that I couldn't have marketed myself as well as I did without all of your help. I'll keep you updated as to which schools I get accepted into. Thanks again for everything."  R, Virginia


Just a quick note to let you know that I was accepted into W&L Law. Thanks for all your help."  C, District of Columbia

"Heike's honesty was helpful. She was great. What a valuable service."  H, New York

"I have been accepted by the Cal Berkeley Law School (Boalt Hall). I find this not only exciting but eerily predictive in that the first words out of your mouth when I spoke to you regarded Boalt Hall. I am sure you probably donít remember, but I do. I could not have done it with out you and I just want to thank you! My warmest regards and sincerest thanks go out to you."  J, Nebraska


Just wanted to let you know that I got my acceptance letter from Baylor today for Spring 2005. It even had a handwritten note from one of the admissions officers!!! As you can imagine I am on cloud nine! This is a real dream come true for me. Never thought that they would offer me a seat. I guess it doesn't hurt to dream a wild dream once in a while!

I also want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and encouragement. With your help I produced a great personal statement, which is what I believe got me into my dream school. I could not have done it without you. Thank you once again."  V, Texas

"Not only did I get into some law schools that I considered to be "stretches" but I also completed my applications more efficiently. Your upfront guidance on strategy and personal statements made the whole process so much more efficient than if I had attempted to go this on my own and wrote 5 to 10 drafts of each of my personal statements like my peers."  H, Arizona

"Heike, I wanted to let you know that I already heard from DU and I got in! The head of the program called me yesterday morning to deliver the news. I know my personal statement played a huge role in me getting accepted thank you very much!"  J, California

"Hey Mark! I got my acceptance letter from HARVARD today -- quick turnaround on my app -- and I am so EXCITED! Thank you so much for your help with everything!!!!"  J, Alabama

"Hi Heike,

Good news! I got accepted to Washington and Lee Law in Virginia.

Just letting you know! :)"  L, Maryland

"I just received an email from Boalt Hall inviting me to join the class of 2004! To say the least I'm in complete shock! But after calling my friends and family I wanted to sit down right away and email you to thank you very much for your help! I don't think I could have made such an application package without your help! Thank you so much. Well I guess the appropriate thing to do now is go out and celebrate! So I'll be off but thank you again for all the endless assistance you showed to me! This is so huge!"  M, Alabama

"Hi Renee,

We haven't spoken in a while so I just wanted to check in. I hope you had a great holiday.

Some good news: I got into the University of Houston! I am so happy."  C, Missouri

"Hi Mark,

I'm sure you've been absolutely bombarded with e-mails from people thanking you for your help, but here's another. THANK YOU!

I just got accepted in UC Hastings! I'm extremely excited. I sent in my enrollment confirmation within 5 minutes of opening the letter (just in case they realize they made a mistake and try to take back my admission).

Thanks for everything!"  K, California

"Hi Heike,

I got admitted to Chicago today! I'll be in Chicago in the beginning of April to visit U of Chicago and Northwestern so hopefully I can thank you in person for all of your help!"  L, California

"Thank God for your assistance! You took a very stressful period in my life and kept me on track and offered me good encouragement. The advice was dead on and your essay assistance seemed magical. You were more than my consultant when I was trying to complete my applications before the deadlines; you were my friend too. Thanks again!!"  S, California

"Hi Mark,

I got into NYU and will be going there this summer. Thanks for all the help. 2 out of 3 is not bad."  G, New York

"Renee was a big help.  We discussed so much and she put in so much time into reviewing my applications from start to finish.  My parents and I are forever grateful to Admissions Consultants and Renee for helping me through this difficult process. I learned that there can never be "too much" information.  I also learned how to take a question that is very general and make it specific to my situation.  I commend all of you for your services and again I thank you."  C, New York

"Hi Heike,

I wanted to let you know that I heard back from Northwestern and I got in!! I am thrilled, and wanted to thank you for your help!

I also was accepted at DePaul, and although I haven't heard back from Kent-Honors yet (their honors deadline was just a few days ago, on 2/27) I'm going to withdraw from those schools as NWU is too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Now I'm going to start looking for an apartment, I can't wait to live in Chicago, this is a dream come true for me.

Thanks again for all of your help, and I hope all is well!"  J, Minnesota

"i'm totally impressed with it [resume] and so is my dad. lol. good job! you're a miracle worker... :)"  U, Florida

"Mark, I'm so excited right now - I got accepted to Northwestern Law!!! I'm sitting here with a large grin on my face as I type this. Thank you 1,000% for all your incredible help. I know I wouldn't be sitting here holding this acceptance if it weren't for you."  B, New York

"Hello Heike,

Great news, I was accepted at Berkeley! Thank you so much for all of your help with my application, I really think it made the difference."  A, Massachusetts

"Dear Admissions Consultants,

I am writing you concerning the services I received from your company. I signed up to receive these services sometime last November and was assigned to work with an amazing professional, Renee Post. In this letter I would like to not only thank you for the fantastic services your company provided but to also emphasize what an outstanding job I believe Renee did.

When I began to sort through my applications I was overwhelmed to say the least. Not knowing exactly how to make the perfect application package I turned to your company. My profile was made up in part by a very good GPA but a very mediocre LSAT score. Renee helped me to use the different aspects of my application to highlight all my good points and assure that anything that did not shine on its own was properly addressed. Her help was untiring and unbelievably thorough.

The results are that I not only got in my top choice for law schools (Boalt Hall which has a 10 point higher median LSAT score than my own) but I have also been accepted and waitlisted by some of the other top programs in the country. All of which I know is the result of a very well put together package. Certainly without my hard work none of this would have happened but at the same time Renee's amazing know how about the application process as well her incredible patience and dedication to her work was a crucial part to my success. I am so grateful to her and to your company for the services provided and will whole heartedly recommend them to friends of mine who are applying to graduate/professional programs in the future. Thank you again and a special thanks to Renee for all of her hard work and professionalism."  M, Alaska

"Hi Heike,

Hope you're having a good holiday. I wanted to let you know I got into USC and NYU today!"  L, California


I have been meaning to e-mail you for the longest time but have been so swamped with work that I have not been able to until now.

So I thought I should tell you that I decided to go to Rutgers-Newark for law school. In the end it was between Northeastern and Rutgers. While there were a lot of things I liked about the Northeastern program there were too many things pulling me to the New York area to turn Rutgers down.

Now looking back on the decision, I could not be happier (I reserve the right to amend this sentiment until after I completed my first semester). I visited the campus and think that it offers exactly what I am looking for.

With that said, I want to thank you for all your help in guiding me through the application process. While I did not get accepted to every school I applied to, I still look at this experience as a positive one because, with your help, I feel that I put my best foot forward and ultimately ended up at a school that I believe will meet my needs. I truly enjoyed working with you and now I know who to call should I decide to transfer to NYU as a 2L.

I hope this e-mail finds you and your family well and that you are enjoying the break before the admissions cycle heats up again in the fall."  A, California


I wanted to let you know that I got into Minnesota off of the waitlist.  What a relief!!!  I'm thrilled and freaked out because I have to move, quit my job, and be in Minnesota by August 30th!!! Anyway, thank you for all of your help.

Best,"  K, Illinois

"Hello Renee,

I hope you have been well.  Following this note is my acceptance to Penn Law!!!   Thank you for all of your help these past few months.  I really do appreciate everything you have done for me.  I'm still waiting on Columbia and Chicago but I'm almost certain I will be attending Penn Law.  Thanks again."  R, Virginia

"Hey Heike,

I decided on Harvard for this fall and actually just sent in my notification yesterday. I had gotten more and more excited about the place, and then went to admitted students day and knew there was no choice, I had to go. I love the place. Heh, I even got to have lunch with Alan Dershowitz, it was a nice touch. I think going there helped me realize that for what I'm looking for Harvard right now is the place to be. Maybe not 20 years ago, but today's Harvard is everything I could ever want so I am stoked! Thanks again so much for all of your help!"  H, California

"Mark, I just thought I would share with you the final results of my Law School Admissions process:

USC: Accepted
UCLA: Accepted
Berkeley: Accepted
Georgetown: Accepted
UVA: Accepted
U Chicago: Accepted
U Penn: Accepted
NYU: Accepted
Columbia: Accepted
Harvard: Accepted (and attending)
Stanford: Rejected
Yale: Waitlisted

Thank you very much for all of your help. I'm starting to consider a joint JD/MBA, so I'll probably be in contact this fall as I start to apply for the MBA portion of the joint program."  M, California
