Being a lawyer isn’t an easy journey.

Lawyers sometimes stay up to the wee hours of the night, fighting off tiredness as they craft arguments for their clients and write laws that will positively impact society.

But you’re no stranger to hard work.

  • You have worked tirelessly, sometimes more than one job, while balancing school, work, and/or family to get to the place you are now.

  • You don’t back down from a challenge; you continue to push through even when life throws you curve balls.

  • You know the goals that you have for your future and the difference going to law school could make, not just in your own life, but the life of your family and those that come after you.

  • You are creating new opportunities and opening doors for generations to come.

  • You don’t just wait for things to happen; you go out, and you make them happen.

  • You utilize the resources you have and surround yourself with the best people to help you achieve your goals.

Lawyers who have soldiered on will likely tell you what fulfilling work it is to have the privilege of making a lasting impact on the world and helping those in need.

I can help you embark on the first step toward your exciting career as a lawyer.

I can help you get the acceptance letter that will allow you to walk into your future.

 

If you’re reading this page, you might be having doubts over whether you’ll be able to do just that.

Maybe you think that you’re not good enough. Maybe you’ve never had someone tirelessly champion you all the way to the finish line.

Someone to pick you up when you are feeling down, encourage you to tell your authentic story, and help you break down barriers in your own life. 

Maybe you’re the first in your family to go to law school, and you’re stepping into the unknown, worried about everything from finances to academics.

As the first lawyer in my family, and having put myself through law school while juggling 2+ jobs and overcoming health challenges, I’d like to be the first to tell you that . . .  YOU CAN DO IT! 


As a professional law school admissions consultant for the past 6+ years, and as a Chair of the Graduate School committee of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, I know what admissions committees are looking for in a law school application.

I’d love to share what I’ve learned with you, and personally coach you as you chase your goal of becoming a lawyer.

I’ll be with you every step of the way, even if (and especially if) you feel like giving up.

I believe in you—let’s make your dreams a reality today.

The law school boot camps are an intense 12-week program, led by my highly trained and qualified boot camp instructors, that follow my specifically curated and developed materials, curriculum, structure, and methods.

 

Our instructors consist of passionate leaders who have been through and understand the law school application process, gone through careful vetting and have been trained directly by Sydney to make sure that students are set up for success. In addition to the 10-small group meetings led by the instructors, boot camp students can meet directly with Sydney in weekly office hours, work directly with Sydney in two hours of private consulting and also get the benefit of three additional hours of essay/resume review throughout the boot camp.

With meetings and outside writing, modules, and activities, students can expect to put in 2-4 hours of work each week in the boot camp. All small group meetings are recorded, however, students are expected to budget their time to complete course modules and activities. New boot camps enroll every month.

What my students say about working with me:

“I always thought my essays were good, however, Sydney took each piece of writing to the next level. Her edits to my writing packed a punch, inevitably creating more compelling works. As a result of working with her, I was able to craft some of my best pieces of writing. 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 am so appreciative for Ms. Montgomery’s help. I can’t recommend her enough! ”

— Harvard Law School, Class of 2021

“Working with Sydney made all the difference in the way that I approached my law school application process. Having someone who is truly invested in helping you meet your goals and has personally walked the path you’re currently on, helps to calm a lot of the anxiety that comes along with the process. I remember being stressed late one night and emailing Sydney. She answered quickly and redirected me to the structured timeline I had in place for when I wanted to have all my components done.”

“Sydney encouraged me to dig deeper to find the true story behind all the experiences I wanted to share in my essays. She believes in your abilities and is truly excited to cheer you on in this process, which is invaluable!”
