What does it take to stand out in the law school admissions process? Most applicants just focus on their GPA and LSAT score. Yes, these numbers are crucial. But admissions officers at top law schools are looking for more. Those numbers don’t paint a complete picture of who you are as an applicant and, more importantly, who you are as a person.
We’re ready to share what law school admissions officers really hope to see. Watch our webinar and we’ll take you behind the scenes!
During this presentation, we will cover:
-Key factors admissions officers consider when deciding which applicants get accepted
-Ways to make the story of your application a memorable one
-How applicants are compared in the admissions process
-Do’s and don’ts for the law school personal statement
-Action points for writing a legal style resume
-Strategies for your letters of recommendation
Join Joel Butterly, Co-Founder and CEO of InGenius Prep (JD, Yale Law School; BA: Dartmouth College), for our FREE webinar on 4/23 at 8pm EST!

This position involves helping Dr. Smith with his research projects in American business history. Specifically, we will be working on understanding how the Jones Act affected ocean shipping, shipbuilding, and rail firms between 1900 and 1940.
To do this, we will combine data from the National Archives’ records on the United States Shipping Board and investment data from Moody’s to build a panel of companies over this time period. The goal is to learn how the Jones Act changed the shipping industry more broadly and to apply those findings to today’s policy environment.
This project will require an interest in economics and history. Familiarity with Microsoft Excel, an interest in high-quality academic research, and technical writing skills are required. Familiarity with R and Stata are helpful but not required.
