Waiting Lists Can Be Your Ticket Into Law School
“My GPA was in the range of my top choice school but my LSAT was several points below their median. I remember calling her and saying, “Is it even worth me following up and pursuing this school considering my LSAT isn’t near their median?” She replied saying, “What do you have to lose, why not?” I ended up getting wait-listed at the school. Ann helped me tailor my multiple letters of continued interest. When I was losing my patience waiting for a response, I would conjure up several strategies, run them by Ann, and she would tell me which ones she found satisfactory and even some she considered borderline crazy. Haha! As I write this testimony, I’m a week away from starting at my top choice law school. Yes, I eventually got in off the wait-list and I couldn’t have done it without Ann’s help!”

So you’ve worked hard on your applications, you survived the LSAT, and you just got waitlisted at your top school. While this isn’t bad news, it can be heart wrenching since it is not yet an acceptance. However, Ann Levine views a wait list decision as a great opportunity to get into your dream law school. There are definitely things you can do to go from waitlist to acceptance, and with The Works package (unlimited consulting), Ann is by your side throughout the entire process.
By expressing sincere interest in attending and being vigilant, law school applicants have an edge on the waiting list. Whether coaching clients through their Harvard Law School skype interview or helping people with their letters of continuing interest, Ann uses her expertise and knowledge of what has worked for clients in the past in order to guide law school applicants through this very important time in the cycle. (Just in the week prior to writing this, Ann received news that clients were admitted to Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, the University of Michigan School of Law, and several other schools from the waiting list).
For Best Chance at Top Choice Law School — Invest in Ann!
“Ann was my go-to person throughout the process of law school applications. Any time I had a question (no matter how trivial) I would frantically email her; she would respond within a few hours reassuring me with her comprehensive answers and suggestions. After receiving an LSAT score that I was not completely happy with, Ann helped me draft a plan for getting into “reach” law schools that I thought were no longer attainable. She helped me draft multiple personal statements, and even helped me brainstorm when I was all out of ideas, ultimately resulting in a very original and effective essay that exponentially strengthened my application. Ann also has the best tactics and advice in navigating law school wait lists, which was extremely helpful when I was wait listed at almost all of the law schools I wanted to attend. With Ann’s help, I was eventually accepted to several of these schools off their waiting lists. This fall, I am heading to one of my reach schools, which would not have been a possibility without Ann. Law school is a huge investment and the law school you go to can dramatically affect the outcome of your legal career. If you want to have the best prospects at getting into your top choice law school, invest in Ann! You won’t regret it!”

Admitted to Michigan Law from the Waiting List
“By working with Ann throughout my law school admissions process, I made myself a very desirable candidate to top law schools, and I produced an application that was extremely competitive. Through Ann’s critiques and advice on my essays, she pushed me to create pieces of work that channeled my stories in a succinct and cogent manner, which drew compliments on acceptance letters from different law schools. Her tips and strategies immensely improved my resume as well, as she helped me highlight my strengths and expound on my various accomplishments. She even assisted me in generating a stellar addendum for my undergraduate grade-point average. Ann was exceptionally punctual at returning my e-mails to any questions that I had, and her vast knowledge of the admissions process definitely gave me a leg up. Even when I was on the wait list at my preferred school, Ann continued to advise me on what beneficial actions I could take to strengthen my case. Ultimately I was accepted to my dream school, and this certainly would not have been the case without the aid of Ann. Most importantly, Ann’s diligent commitment and dedication to my success during this process truly shows how much she cares for her clients. I could not be any more ecstatic for using Ann!”
