"Wow, I am so happy I took this course. My previous law school application looks elementary compared to the 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

"Hi Peg, I wanted to say thank you. I know I am not done with your course yet, but you have been extremely helpful so far. I appreciate you so very, very much. So thank you for doing this and for being you!" -- Leslie Anne

"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 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

"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

"I was surprised how eye opening the 49 stories exercise was. I helped me categorize and chronologically reflect on a 20 year past of jumbled memories. It was interesting to me to compare my goals and general perceptions about life from my school age/teenage years and what they are now." -- Anna

"The 49 Stories was helpful for me to hone in on the stories that I knew I had but I wasn’t sure I could develop into a personal statement. Probably the most helpful part of the course was getting the chance to read the examples. Many of those examples made me realize that it was ok to get REALLY personal with the personal statement and that I should not feel any sort of pressure to make it anything like a statement of intent. The result for me is a personal statement that I think fits really well into my overall law school "package." I’m excited to apply and see what happens! Thank you so much for this course. It definitely provided the focus and direction I needed." -- Kara

"Peg, I’m sending you a huge virtual hug right now! Even though it took me a lot longer than 7 days to complete my draft, I am very proud of the end result. Thank you for being with me cheering me on every step of the way and for motivating me to have the courage to write about something I was afraid to write because I was worried about what others would think. I hope that schools will see my growth and passion through my essay. Immensely grateful for this class for getting me to this point. I KNOW it wouldn’t have been the same without you." -- Gopika

"The 49 Stories was a fun exercise and I feel that I’m going to have some great material moving forward." -- Patrick

"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
