Since 2008, Michelle Fabio, Esq. has been providing personal statements critiques to aspiring law students; in that time, she’s received countless thanks and praise for her thorough, helpful reviews–and so Personal Statement Artist review and editing services and The Art of the Law School Personal Statement eBook were born.
Michelle is the former About.com Guide to Law School, a licensed attorney, Managing Editor of Gemelli Press, and freelance writer and editor as well as official blogger for LegalZoom.com. Through her time at About.com, Michelle consulted with admissions officers at top law schools around the country.
She knows what law school adcomms want to see in personal statements — and what makes an essay forgettable or even harmful to an otherwise solid application.
Quick example? All too often, law school applicants fail to focus on the obvious, i.e., showing they will succeed in law school. Professor X in Law School Undercover gives an excellent description of what a PS theme should be: “You are diligent, thorough, and organized.”
Easy peasy, right? But how can you present that most effectively to the admissions committee? That’s where Michelle can help.
