  • P.S. Boot Camp II: Outsmart, Outwrite, Outlast (a.k.a. The TFA Essay)

    OK, so I'm a year late with the promised second round of my P.S. Boot Camp , and frankly, much later into the summer than I had hoped to be in writing this. But I was gone to San Diego for a much-needed vacation, and San Diego isn't a place where one feels inclined to do work. In fact, as an...

  • P.S. Boot Camp: Overcoming Obstacles...But Not Really (Part II)

    OK, back on the wagon here with writing on the blog (sorry, things get hectic with the start of the school year). So, where were we? Oh yes, I think in our last Boot Camp we discussed obstacles versus disappointments , and why it's important to know the difference before deciding to incorporate either...

  • P.S. Boot Camp: Overcoming Obstacles...But Not Really (Part I)

    Sorry I've been away from the blog...we admissions deans take vacations too, and I was in the Great State of Texas for the past week. Love Texas -- I have to be honest, if you like Mexican food, Connecticut is definitely not where it's at. Anyway, this week we'll look at the ever-popular...

  • Summer Fun!

    We've been wrapping up the class over the last month or so, and now are pretty much set to coast for the summer. Usually we sign off for the summer, but this year I thought I'd try to do something different: for those of you getting a head start on your law school applications, I'll be hosting...
