  • WHAT MAKES LAW SCHOOL ACEs DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LAW SCHOOL ADMISSIONS CONSULTING COMPANIES?

    The Law School ACEs team is made up of professionals who not only have earned J.D. and advanced degrees, but also have decades of experience in both law school admissions and law school student services offices. In addition, Law School ACEs will provide you with experts who have been law school teachers as well as admissions officers. This means they have a deep understanding of the academic challenges presented by law school and will be better able to counsel you.
