the only reason it is not totally absurd is the reason listed above.  knowing how it comes off to a stranger is valuable.

nothing wrong with a little debate.  you might want to reconsider law school if someone stating an opinion you don't agree with bothers you.

i'm genuinely curious.  and also a little concerned, because even though you do get to know people on a message board, you don't really know them. 

i think the people i will be sending my personal statements to probably have a better idea than your average undergrad, is all i'm saying.  for example, a 45 year old attorney who went to my target school might judge something to be trite and immature sounding.  a 21 year old college senior might not. 

good advice from bad advice regardless of the source? yes.  but how exactly does someone else who is applying to law school really know what admissions people are looking for in a personal statement?  aside from reading the same stuff i do? 

and i'm guessing the vast majority of people who post here are just offense, but not really experts in anything.

yes, i am.  i'm going to be sending it to people whose expertise i can verify. 

honestly?  i will be getting help from my parents (eg living with them) and a buttload of loans.

Law School Admissions / Re: Impact of majors assumed as "fluffy"

a 4.0 from a crappy school is not the same as a 4.0 from a good school.  not only do law schools know this, but potential employers during and after law school know this too.

i think it's supposed to be academic, not necessarily from undergrad.  a lot of these kiddos say that because they are still in undergrad. 

well, if i were to read one, i'd be comparing it to my own.  maybe i'm not that nice.  :)

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / why?

why would you let a bunch of strangers on the internet read and critique your personal statement?  a). for all you know these people are a bunch of idiots who are going to give very poor advice b). for all you know these people are just reading a bunch of statements in order to assess the "competition" and write theirs accordingly.

just sayin.
