Writing a Law School Personal Statement Workshop

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Aside from your LSAT score and grades, your personal statement is the most important part of your law school application.  Nearly all law schools require that students submit a two-page personal statement along with their law school application.  Admissions officials *do* read personal statements - and they matter ... a lot.  The personal statement is your one chance to set yourself apart from the hundreds (or thousands) of other applications being reviewed by an admissions committee.

Don't know what to write or how to get started?  Then sign up for the:
