A little more in-depth:
What I like most about being a Stratus Law School Admissions Counselor:
Working together with prospective students to identify their goals, then collaborating to achieve those reminds me what being a counselor is all about. The better I get to personally know an applicant, the more vested I become in the outcome of their journey, and watching them grow and refine their skills, followed by seeing the happiness that comes with being admitted to a good school brings me great satisfaction.
One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to law school:
Ranking and numbers aren’t everything. Each applicant should look past their scores and where a school is ranked, remembering that every applicant brings something unique to the table – as does every law school. Some schools that seem out of reach may admit a candidate with a lower LSAT score or GPA because they like the unique experiences that the applicant brings to the table. Similarly, when trying to decide between schools, candidates need to remember that a lower ranked school may be a better fit for many reasons, such as the applicant’s interest in a specific area of the law.
