Book Reviews

“Like a lot of law students, Gina Akao didn’t do nearly enough research before deciding to go to law school. But unlike a lot of law students, Gina did make the honest and courageous decision to leave law school when she became convinced that becoming a lawyer wasn’t a path that would lead to career happiness. By chronicling in detail her journey into, and out of, law school, Gina’s story reinforces the critical career advice, first uttered by Socrates, that anyone in or considering law school should take to heart: ‘Know Thyself.'”

–Deborah Schneider, Esq, co-author of “Should You Really Be A Lawyer? The Guide to Smart Career Choices Before, During and After Law School.”

Tales of a Law School Dropout Review

“Gina Akao accurately portrays with gripping detail the neuroticism that every law student experiences in Tales of a Law School Dropout, from the frenetic process of studying for the LSAT through the trials and tribulations of the first semester of law school.”

–Rick R. Hsu, Esq.
Maupin, Cox & LeGoy

Admissions Consulting

“I approached Gina to help me prepare for an MBA admissions interview. Despite my short notice, she was able to thoroughly research the school and provide a challenging and thought-provoking interview experience. Above all else, her assistance gave me the confidence and the positive state of mind to walk into that admissions office and ace my interview. Thanks in part to Gina’s help, I am now a MBA student at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business – one of the top ten business education institutions in the US.”

–Hongda Jiang, MBA student at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business

Editing Services

“Gina has been a great help to me by editing my graduate school written assignments. As a non-native speaker, I struggle with grammatical and stylistic aspects of the language when it comes to academic writing. Gina is a very knowledgeable, detail-oriented person whose editing skills I absolutely trust. Not only does she correct or suggest better variations, but also she explains the rules of English grammar and punctuation so one can learn from her. I am certain that Gina’s professional skills as an editor can be applied to many fields.”

–Olga Martinez, graduate student in Educational Leadership at UNR
