I used an editing service before I sent my personal statement out.  I think I paid $99 for the service, and I was basically pleased.  However, I think it is very important to wait until you have a very well thought out personal statement before sending it in.  I basically used it to double check my grammar, spelling, etc., not for major issues.  I'll also add that in some ways my paper came back a bit jumbled.  I just used a few of the suggestions to strengthen my paper, it definitely did not come back in perfect form.  But, I feel that a few of the wording and organization suggestions were useful in the strengthening of my essay.  If you have an extra $80-$100 laying around I'd say go for it, otherwise you might try asking a professor or writing workshop to go through it. 

I hope this helps!  Good luck

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is Testmaster's really  worth $1,250?
« on: September 11, 2003, 12:54:36 PM »
I took TestMasters in Illinois and thought it was a good investment.  I started off with a 152 (on the first diagnostic) and ended up with a 157 on the LSAT.  My diagnostic scores throughout the course were (in order): 152, 154, 157, 159, 167, 161, 163.  I was slightly disappointed with a 157 after scoring in the 160's, but as someone mentioned above, an increase of a couple points can make a huge difference.  I am looking at a completely different range of schools now.
