I've Been There


I attended Harvard Law School, where I had Teaching Fellowships under Professor Niall Ferguson and under former Harvard President Larry Summers. I then had a full scholarship to Cambridge University's Judge School of Business in the UK. I am a frequent guest lecturer at Harvard, Wharton, Cambridge, Brandeis, and other top universities.

I've helped lots of students


Since 2007, I've guided students to help them get into the right law or business schools for them. Over the past 16 years, I've successfully assisted over 50 clients, with a satisfaction rate of 98+% (only one client has been dissatisfied during this time).



Concierge Service


I personally work one-on-one on every aspect of the application with every client. I don't outsource anything. I provide counseling from the beginning of the application process to the end.

Beyond the Application



I can provide guidance on the entire admissions cycle, from advice on the LSAT or GMAT before your application, asking for letters of recommendation, waitlist advice, and scholarships and financial aid.

David back's bio


I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania and cum laude from Harvard Law School, where I had teaching fellowships on the history and future of globalization under Professor Niall Ferguson and under former Harvard President and former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. I then received a full scholarship to pursue an MBA at Cambridge University’s Judge School of Business in the UK. I scored a perfect 180 on the LSAT, 760 out of 800 on the GMAT, and 1560 out of 1600 on the GRE.

Since 2007, I have worked with students to help them get into the law or business school that was right for them. I also helped them search for financial aid and scholarships. In those 16+ years, I have worked with over 50 happy clients. In 98% of cases, they went to a school that was a better fit for them than if they had not worked with me (one client has been dissatisfied in all that time).

Outside of counseling applicants to law and business school, I have a track record of success in entrepreneurship, venture capital, and private equity investing.

I co-founded Zoomcar, the first car rental company in India to focus on “western-style” rentals with no chauffeur. Zoomcar launched in February 2013 with 7 cars in Bangalore. The business now has over 40,000 vehicles in India, Egypt, Indonesia, and Vietnam and is about to IPO on NASDAQ.

I worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Co, as an investment manager at Goldman Sachs, and as a research analyst for the General Counsel of the Kauffman Foundation.

Until recently, I was one of the owners of the much-beloved 53 year-old Tattered Cover small chain of bookstores in my hometown of Denver, CO. I am also the editor of 365 Of The Wittiest, Most Cutting Insults From History, a page-a-day desk calendar sold to Barnes & Noble Publishing. It features insults from the likes of Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, Dorothy Parker, Voltaire, and even Gandhi and the Dalai Lama.
