$10K+ in LSAT Prep Scholarships
At Velocity Test Prep, we are acutely aware that the American legal and social systems are not now delivering, nor have they ever delivered, on the promise of equal justice that is meant to undergird the American experience. We believe it’s past time for us to do our small part to help.
Thus, we are ready to announce our new 2020 Change In Position Scholarship program. Our Change In Position (CIP) equality scholarships are LSAT prep scholarships that will guarantee that each CIP recipient will increase her/his LSAT score by 10 points or more, or else will score in the 99th% (full details on how we make the guarantee work here).
The 2020 CIP scholarships will be awarded to as many as 13 people who demonstrate a commitment to achieving a more just, more equal American society through the work they will do as a result of their admission to law school.
At Velocity, we’ve always been here to help you change your position; to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be, by helping you understand this one silly standardized test. Now we are attempting to broaden our mandate in order to do our small part to help deserving candidates effect concrete, meaningful change by their study of law.
We know that real, lasting change will come from cooperation, empathy, and force of will applied across multiple social systems by people who are deeply committed to making change happen.
And we want you to know that we’ve got your back.
To that end, our CIP scholarships are our small way of showing our support for the important work you’ll do in pushing our society forward. That work may take many forms, and we are not placing any limits on your aspirations; you tell us how you’re going to make the change, and we’ll help you get there.
In all, we intend to award over $10,000 in LSAT prep scholarships to recipients this year, so if the contents of this brief note describe you and your career goals, then we urge you to apply. We’re here to help you get past this one hurdle, so that you can help others get past the systemic barriers they face.
Here are the full details:
To apply, please send an essay in PDF format, not to exceed 1,000 words (shorter essays will not be disadvantaged by their brevity!), in which you describe:
1.Your career goals.
2. How meeting those goals will work to bring about a more equal American society.
3. How attending law school will help you further those goals (if the connection is not self-evident).
4. Plus, any past efforts you’ve made in the fight for equality, and any other factors about your life and circumstances that would impress upon us your commitment to the ideal of realizing true equality under the law and in American society.
- Application essays should be sent as an email attachment to Dave Hall at Dave@VelocityLSAT.com
- The deadline for 2020 CIP application submissions is 11:59 pm on August 15, 2020.
- We are accepting CIP applications now, and we intend to make all our recipient selections for 2020 no later than September 1, 2020.
- The CIP scholarship will take the form of a nonrefundable, nontransferable certificate that pays the recipient’s full enrollment fee in the 12-month Velocity Course. Each CIP scholarship includes the guarantee that the recipient will increase her/his score by 10 points or will score in the 99th%, or we’ll keep working with her/him at no cost until one or both of those goals are reached.
