Private Law School Admissions Advising

In our community, you never have to feel alone on the law school journey again.

Here at Barrier Breakers® Admissions Advising, we all understand how hard it is to be the first person in your family to pursue higher education.

No more searching through Reddit to get answers.

No more wandering aimlessly without a plan or structure.

No more writing 20 drafts of your personal statement just to feel discouraged.

No more listening to that tiny voice in your head that says you can’t do this because of your LSAT score or your GPA.

Harvard Law School, Class of 2021

"As a result [of working with Barrier Breakers® Admissions Advising], I was able to get into nearly every law school I applied to. I truly believe that I would not have been lucky enough to get into half of these schools, never mind attend Harvard this fall. I can’t recommend them enough!

Our Non-Profit Pricing Model

As a brand of the non-profit organization Barrier Breakers®, Inc., we offer sliding scale pricing for applicants who reflect our mission.

What does this mean? Our mission is to increase access to and success in higher education for BIPOC and other marginalized students; as such we have a sliding scale for students who fall into one of those categories and/or demonstrate great financial need. The tables below represent the discounts that we offer for these groups. When you sign up to work with us, you will automatically be redirected to a payment page with your discount applied.

We work with all students, however, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or ability to pay! If you are not eligible for a scholarship, you may pay in full or use a payment plan.

Scholarships are not stackable. You are eligible for the highest discount for which you qualify.
For example, if you are a first-generation law student (10% off) and have an LSAC Fee-Waiver, you are eligible for 75% off of our services.

*Seats are filled for LSAC Fee Waiver Holders until the fall. To secure your seat to begin working with us in the fall, you can fill out the registration form and complete your payment. If you want to start working with us now, you may register with our Mission-Based pricing at 10% off. Additionally, Fee Waiver Holders get access to our 12-week boot camps for just $500 while seats last.
