"LevelBar provided me with community and resources to build confidence and get into law school."
2017 LevelBar Scholar Lilianna Romero

"I was part of the 2017 LevelBar cohort and I truly found this program to be an invaluable experience. Prior to starting the program I was completely lost in the law school application process. Thanks to LevelBar, I was able to create a clear application roadmap and get introduced to the LSAT. I will forever be thankful for the assistance I received throughout the entire law school application process, for the amazing mentors I met here, and for helping me make my dream of becoming an immigration attorney a reality. I hope to one day successfully advocate for my community, help others navigate the current broken immigration system, and bring families together."
