DEREK E. MEEKER JOINS ADMISSIONSCONSULTANTS, INC.

PENN LAW ADMISSIONS DEAN WILL CONSULT WITH GROWING LAW-SCHOOL ADMISSIONS CLIENTELE

Vienna, VA. AdmissionsConsultants, Inc., announces that Derek E. Meeker, J.D., former dean of admissions and financial aid at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, is joining the company's law-school admissions consulting group.

"Derek Meeker will bring a wealth of expertise and experience to our growing group of law-school admissions clients. This is a leap forward for AdmissionsConsultants and for those we serve," noted David Petersam, president of AdmissionsConsultants.

At Penn Law, Meeker was the final decision maker on more than 21,000 applications and has been credited with numerous improvements in the law school's admissions process. Before joining Penn Law, he was assistant director of admissions at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minn. He also served as an assistant attorney general in Ohio, where he represented universities and state agencies in employment litigation. In the early 1990s, he was a legislative aide to the chairman of the Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee. In this role, he drafted legislation in the areas of criminal law, sentencing, and the state lottery.

Meeker holds a J.D. from Capital University, studied comparative law at Oxford University, and graduated cum laude with a B.S. in journalism from Ohio University.

"Our numbers of law-school clients have increased in the past two years, and we have been searching for a consultant who could respond to the growing demand," added Petersam. "In addition to his experience with law-school admissions, Derek also has a strong background in dual-degrees, such as the JD-MBA program."

AdmissionsConsultants provides admissions consulting to a worldwide clientele that ranges from high school students aiming for selective undergraduate programs to college students and graduates preparing for admission to law, medical, and MBA programs. The company's consultants all have executive-level admissions experience, much of it at highly selective colleges and universities. In addition, they are professionals in the fields they represent, including physicians, lawyers, and business executives.

AdmissionsConsultants was founded in 1996.
