With a "buy it now" of $4000, I'm hoping you have some comparable credentials.
The individual you're asking about is the creator of Law School Predictor, a trusted and heavily used tool for determining odds of law school admissions. He is also an admin on Top-Law-Schools.com and has repeatedly given solid advice to applicants as well as written several articles which are visible in the "TLS Content Competitions" category and demonstrate his extensive knowledge of the law school admissions process. There are many people (including OperaSoprano, see above) who would vouch for his expertise and helpfulness.
Of course, this is an auction we're talking about. You don't have to pay $4,000 if you don't believe his services are worth that much. Is it worth $4,000? Maybe, maybe not, depends on how much money you have to blow and how impressed you are with his existing contributions to LSP and TLS. But the Buy It Now option expired when bids were placed, and there is no reserve price, meaning it can go for substantially less than that. Right now the bidding is at... lemme see... $174.50. Are 20 hours of his time worth that much? Most certainly, that would be an absolute bargain, not to mention that the money raised goes to charity, and a rather good cause I might add.
People on TLS trust his judgment every day for free. The question is, how much would it be worth to have his full attention focused just on you and your cycle? The answer will of course be the high bid. (All hail the free market! )
