Heather is a proponent of ethical coaching and believes that every individual has the potential to excel if given the right direction and support. Her message to all students is “to work hard and aspire high.” For aspirants in the workforce, the challenges are somewhat different.
She says, “Work smart on the applications while working hard for your clients.” Heather coaches from a subject matter no-bar model for mentoring. She believes that students should not seek “application assistance.” Rather they should seek profile building with a coach that can mentor while in the earlier years of law school as well as guide him or her through the application process in later years.
She takes the time to ensure fundamental understanding of the application procedures and demands. Moreover, she carefully explains how submissions will be viewed by readers and evaluators in the university admission team. This is an area in which she can provide some first-hand insight from her time at Harvard. “But keep in mind, there is no guarantee of admission,” she says.
“The only guarantee is that you surely will not get admitted if you do not apply. If approached by any coaching or
counselling group which guarantees admission? Run, quickly, the other way! They are most likely recruiting for a university that is well beneath your credentials.”
Wallick Global Consulting has achieved success with coaching students who have been admitted to most of the top tier LL.M. programs including: Harvard, Colombia, NYU, Cambridge, UC Berkley, U Penn, Cornell, U Chicago, UCL, LSE, NUS and Kings. Apart from the LL.M., she has also helped students with their application strategies for their admissions to the YALE Silver Scholar Program, MIT SLOAN (MBA/MS), MBA at Kellogg, INSEAD, NYU and many MS programs at universities such as Stanford and Carnegie Mellon.
In addition, she has a thriving undergraduate admissions practice, but her priority in starting a coaching practice in India has always been to bring quality application support services and capacity building to the LL.M./SJD candidate.
She is careful to note that no university pays her to “recruit” students. In fact, reputed universities may provide information sessions, but most of the elites do not recruit directly or work with agents – they already have more applicants than they need to fill their seats.
