You won’t find a better deal anywhere else.

But don’t take my word for it…

WHAT PAST STUDENTS SAY:

Wow, I am so happy I took this course. My previous law school application looks elementary compared to the refined resume and personal statement I have recently drafted. I am very proud of my first draft and I know I have a great foundation piece to adjust to each specific law school I am interested in. Thanks, Peg!  — Carolina

Peg, I want to let you know that this course is really helpful so far. To be honest, I had some doubts with taking online courses, until I decided to give it a try after hearing such great things about you from Jane. What’s really helping me is that you seem to perfectly understand the pressure that an applicant is going through. After taking the LSAT, I was really mentally exhausted and couldn’t keep up with preparing my statement…I needed someone to provide me a to-do list that not only releases the pressure and stressful feelings I have, but also gives me motivation to start. I’m on my sixth day, and I’m almost done with my draft. As you said, it has been an encouraging process. — Alice

Peg, I have just finished Lesson 1 and I have to hand it to you, these writing exercises have been a good, and certainly cathartic, exercise. My main concern in writing my personal statement is delving deep and expressing myself. However, I do believe that this class will serve as a perfect opportunity to do just that. At the present time I am feeling good and very hopeful! — Aidan

Completing the 49 stories made me discover that I am a lot more interesting than I presumed to be. I actually have a lot of stories to tell, but they all somehow end up coming back to a central theme of my culture and my family. I learned just how heavily my culture influences my life, which was a huge surprise to me…I learned so much about my life, myself, and the experiences in my past that shaped who I am today thanks to this class! Thanks to this class I feel I wrote a concise and clear personal statement. Peg rocks and all her tips are awesome! Put in the work, you won’t be disappointed.  — Daniela

In writing the 49 Stories prompts, I discovered that I really enjoy this free-writing technique. I have always dreaded writing things (research papers, essays, reports etc), but with this technique, I found that I really enjoyed sitting down and writing when I don’t worry about the grammar, syntax or spelling and just get the ideas down on paper. I actually really looked forward to finishing all 49 prompts! I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is having difficulty getting started with their personal statement. The guidelines and tips Peg provides throughout the 7 days are invaluable. — Adela

This special 20% off deal ends at 9 PM PST/ Midnight EST on November 30, 2014.

Alice Reviews My Personal Statement Class

typing-laptop-booksAs a law school admissions consultant, I depend on two key occurrences every year to let me know if I’m succeeding with my work.

First, is seeing my clients admitted into stretch law schools or any solid or safety law schools with substantial scholarships.

The second way I know if I’m succeeding is through feedback.

Feedback comes in many ways: through emails, phone calls, comments and questions on the Prelaw Guru Blog and in my online classes, and through tweets and DMs.

This week I received an email from Alice. She decided to take my online class, Write Your Personal Statement in 7 Days. This is the email Alice sent me after taking the class.

Peg, I really want to let you know that this course is really helpful so far. To be honest, I had some doubts with taking online courses, until I’ve decided to give it a try after hearing such great things about you from Jane.

What’s really helping me is that you seem to perfectly understand the pressure that an applicant is going through. After taking the LSAT, I was really mentally exhausted and couldn’t keep up with preparing my statement. I felt as if I became a failure and couldn’t stand up by myself until I’ve enrolled into this class. 

I needed someone to provide me a to-do list, that not only releases the pressure and stressful feelings I have, but also gives me the motivation to start. I’m on my sixth day, and I’m almost done with my draft. As you said, it has been an encouraging process. 

Now looking back, I think the title of this course is really motivating as well… “Write your personal statement in 7 days.” Who would have thought that would be possible? I guess my doubts were that I didn’t believe that I could get a clearer picture of my statement within five days.

Well begun is half done. I feel much better now (although I need endless revision/check ups/reviews/etc), but most importantly I feel like I have control over this application process. It isn’t stressful as it was earlier.

For now, my goal is to submit by the end of this weekend, and I believe it has been possible due to all of your great advice. As much as I needed some “You can do it!” encouragement, I definitely needed your “Try this. You will make it” type of advice.

Thanks again,
Alice

When I read Alice’s feedback, especially the lines: “I feel like I have control over this application process. It isn’t as stressful as it was earlier…” it makes my heart sing.

That’s what it’s all about.

Taking conscious action.

Feeling less stress.

Making your way forward one step at a time.

Like Alice, if you are feeling stressed about writing your personal statement for law school and you’re not sure where to turn for help, I hope you’ll check out my class, Write Your Personal Statement in 7 Days. I think you’ll be surprised by how much you can learn and accomplish in just one week.
