Jelena & Branden dive into the parts of your law school application that you don’t actually have to do (but maybe you should).

From diversity statements to addenda to those weird Georgetown 250-word mini-essay prompts, it’s all here.

Listen and learn . . .

  1. Why not all diverse applicants should write a diversity statement
  2. When an addendum can help, and when it would do more harm than good
  3. How admissions departments may be using extra essay prompts to trap you into revealing poor judgment or deficient writing skills
  4. How your diversity statement should differ from your personal statement
  5. Why you shouldn’t write any essay you don’t feel strongly about (except the mandatory ones!)
  6. . . . and more!
