TLS is your Admissions Consultant. It knows more than Loretta DeLoggio.

No, I think you might be working too hard... There's such a thing as being counterproductive.

She'd also, by contract, want some control over what schools I apply for (with a clause stating that I could not apply to any school we did not mutually agree upon). Furthermore, from her recent clients listed on her website, it doesn't seem like any of them were accepted to schools that I wouldn't be able to get in on my own merits, which I would prefer, I think, because someone holding my hand now will not be of any use to me in the future when I will have to stand on my own.


As somebody who almost certainly had a better run of the law school admissions cycle than Ms. DeLoggio or any of her clients, I've gotta say that signing this "contract" sounds like an incredibly stupid idea.

That's the soft part of your application. No good without the hard. And God that sounded much less dirty in my head.

Holy shit run as fast as possible in the opposite direction from this person.

1) this is probably a flame
2) this could very well be violating some sort of honor code
3) if this is real, OP might not be clever enough to go to law school

I just checked her website and now I'm convinced that she's a flame

"Fortunately, most of you will have several acceptances from which to choose, and will be back to the first question I posed: which law school is right for you? Try not to let reputation carry too much weight in your decision; it will make no difference in the long run whether the law school is ranked ninth or seventeenth. Look at locale, facilities, and programs. Visit the schools to see whether the student body feels right to you, whether the faculty seems friendly, whether the city feels navigable. Consider cost, size, anything that is important to you. Talk to other people who have lived in that location or attended that school. Then toss a coin."

COME ON

also she tells you to watch youtube and read wiki to educate yourself. She also recommends that you adopt a puppy.

"The fees for this service range from $1500 for disadvantaged minority applicants to as high as $5,000 for other applicants. Fees are determined after a lengthy (usually 2 hour) phone conversation, for which there is no charge."

OMG

She is going to google herself, find this thread, and cry.

But seriously run the other way.

1) Flame against what? I'm not sure this makes much sense. I am not downing Ms. DeLoggio, I'm simply asking opinions about a service that has been offered to me about which I am confused.
2) What honor code is being violated by me asking advice on a topic I am confused about?
3) You really do not have any idea about my cleverness. Though I am confused about exactly what about the situation makes me unclever. Is it the fact that I am not jumping into a deal that I know little about or is it that fact that I am asking people who may know more than me their opinions? And before you ask, this is hardly the only source of information or the most credible that I am going off of. Perhaps the fact that I haven't outright rejected the offer before me makes me unclever in your eyes, but that would mean that it were clever to make a decision without doing any research at all.
Why don't you tell me why I'm not clever and I'll decide how clever your reasoning is?

Dude if you even GLANCE at her website for more than a second (I just spend 10 minutes there) you will see how WRONG it is for you to even consider talking to someone doing what she does.

I apologize if you find my dig at your cleverness to be offensive, however, if you had an hour long conversation with this woman and you don't smell the shit then my point stands. You're considering taking her service for free? I wouldn't let her give me money to fuck up my chances at getting into the school I want.
