Hosted by Mike Spivey, founder of the Spivey Consulting Group, the Status Check covers life and wellbeing plus all things law school and admissions. Our admissions advice comes from our Spivey Consulting team — who collectively have over 220 years of experience working in law school admissions offices including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Chicago, and Penn — and covers how to get into the best possible law school you can, plus news and predictions about the current state of law school admissions.
 
John Spivey hosts "Spivey Loves You", a weekly interview podcast where we discover new ways of thinking, living, and taking back control of life and work. We'll talk to people who found themselves in - and left - abusive relationships with sociopaths/psychopaths; people who have left cults or radically changed their views on religion; and other people who were in high control environments both at work and home. We'll just be maneuvering the tricky minefield of simply being human - together.
