Personal Statement / Re: Is this overkill?

MemeMeme:

You should never draft your personal statement solely to speak to one law school.  While this may resonate strongly with that school and its admissions' committee, it will (very likely) marginalize the other law schools you submit it too.  The key is to draft one template statement, and then tailor it according to the strengths, faculty, and qualities of each law school you are applying to. 

"Namedropping" is only productive if you name a faculty member or instructor you want to take a class with.  For instance, "Columbia Law ranks as my top choice because of its strong international law curriculum, and taking Human Rights Law with Professor Smith, a prominent scholar in the field, will advance my knowledge of the area."  This is an example of proactive and effective namedropping.

Personal Statement / Re: Personal Statement When Reapplying
« on: September 18, 2010, 01:22:35 PM »
Steven,

Re-application is an opportunity to introduce a new, and revitalized, illustration of yourself to admissions committees.  Therefore, definitely draft a new personal statement that focuses on a new dimension of your experience, and ultimately links it with your motivation for pursuing a law degree.

HOWEVER, you should not state your reason for reapplying in your personal statement.   This may compromise the positive voice or optimism you want to project in the Statement.  Thus, draft an Addendum that is specifically composed to address your reason(s) for reapplying.  Here, use a formal voice, be candid, clear, and honest.  But, use two different forums/pieces for the statement story and the reapplication story.

If you have any further questions, please contact me, Kal, at info@writetrackadmissions.com.

Personal Statement / Re: Please critique this PS
« on: April 03, 2010, 04:38:00 PM »
Indeed, this statement reads more like a contextualizing addendum versus a personal statement.  Remember, the tone of the statement should positively and proactively, instead of excusatory.  You can center it around a top such as alcoholism, but be sure to articulate how the experience helped you evolve as a person, showcase your ability to overcome the obstacle, and how this experience drove your pursuit of a JD. 

As a former admissions officer, it is key to submit a compelling statement that illustrates you in the most dynamic light - it is indeed your first impression, and your "interview on paper."

If you need more involved help with your personal statement, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Personal Statement / Re: what do you think about this topic????

Mike,

Choosing to draft your personal statement around a personal, emotional, and sensitive topic is a risk, but the reward is also considerable.  These statement tend to make the most resonating statements.  For instance, a student I worked last year drafted a statement around his multiple DUI's, and how he was ultimately able to transcend and defeat alcoholism, which also ran in his family, and aspired to focus on defense work helping individuals with alcohol/drug issues.  With a lower LSAT and GPA, he was admitted to three top-25 law schools.

If you need more involved help articulating your statement, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

First, I think the theme/scope is very compelling and unique.  However, the presentation needs significant focusing, better articulation, and a stronger nexus to the pivotal "why law" question.  If you need more involved assistance with the statement, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Best,

Kal, Write Track Admissions
