Personal Statement / Personal statement length
« on: July 20, 2009, 06:26:35 PM »
Hi all,

I'm starting the first draft of my personal statement and was wondering what the maximum page length was for the T14 schools. I know about the Yale 250 and that Berkeley allows you up to 4 pages, and that 2-3 pages is pretty standard for most other schools, but if anyone has any specific information about the rest of the T14, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks! :)

Thanks everyone for the replies. As it turns out I probably won't be doing research this year (I didn't have room to schedule the class for it) but I appreciate the input. :)

Thanks for replying. You're right, I don't want to, as you put it, play to adcomm's perceived interests or do something just because it would look good, and I also know that numbers are king. I was just curious as to whether doing research would make up for not doing anything else, haha. But I think that I'm going to join a couple things this semester anyway, so I'm not going to worry too much.

Law School Applications / Research vs. extracurriculars

Hi everyone, this is my first post, please don't bite. I'm a sophomore interested in law school, right now my GPA's pretty good and who knows about the LSAT until I take it, but I was wondering about the other parts of the application, namely resume stuff. I don't really have any extracurriculars/leadership positions as of yet, but I've had some involvement with research/symposiums and was considering doing more of that in the next couple years.  My question is whether research could count as a viable extracurricular or would look impressive on a law school application, or if it would be wiser to instead devote that time to a traditional pre-law club or something. Thanks!
