A new standardized exam is making waves: JD-Next, whose backers say that, unlike the long-dominant Law School Admission Test, it predicts academic success with “little to no score disparities for under-represented groups"
Move over LSAT, there’s a new test in town Standardized tests are nothing new. They've been around for more than 2,000 years, used during the Han Dynasty to fill positions in China’s imperial bureaucracy.
⭐️Honored to receive this testimonial:
“When we came to Brenda for college admissions coaching, my daughter struggled to find the right topic for her personal statement. She had been through multiple iterations and topics by this point and was feeling a bit hopeless. After just one call with Brenda, she landed on a fabulous story to tell. And, it turned out beautifully. To date, she's been accepted to 3 colleges on her list, and one with a $25K a year scholarship! I strongly believe that the personal essay had a lot to do with these successes. Thanks, Brenda!"

Today I received an enthusiastic email from a long-time client, a senior-level executive. Since 2015, he has been engaging The Essay Expert every year or two for resume updates.
Two weeks ago, he heard that his current company would likely be shutting down, and he saw the writing on the wall. It took him exactly 13 days to get an offer at a large healthcare organization.
A recruiter at the company told him she has NEVER seen a candidate move so quickly through the process.
How was this top-level executive able to land a new position so quickly?
His resume and LinkedIn profile showcased his accomplishments and were completely up to date.
Are you a senior-level executive? Could you send out your resume tomorrow if needed?
