Expert's post
Your target list seems in line with your profile, but make sure you go into some detail about your firm when you apply since it sounds like it will be unknown to the adcoms. Also think along the lines of what you bring to the table over the next applicant who has similar profile characteristics. You already mentioned a few differentiating areas such as working for a more boutique firm vs. a large bureaucratic one, but there are a lot of niche firm applicants out there. You have to think about someone very similar to you--how do you stand out? Approaching the application in this way will help you craft a story which resonates with the adcoms. I highly recommend consulting services for you mainly due to the level of schools to which you aspire. Let us know if we can earn your trust and help you with your applications.
