Personal Statement / How short is too short?
« on: November 05, 2006, 07:44:59 PM »
As I begin editing my PS, I seem to be cutting it down shorter and shorter but with the same message still getting across. My question is simply how short is too short?

For the mean GPA for a school, what number indicates that grade inflation is occuring.. 3.20..3.30.. 3.40?

For those that go to difficult undegrads, what was your undergraduate mean GPA per LSAC?
The LSAC mean is only the people applying to law school, so you really can't tell what the actual mean is. A lot of public schools try to weed out students in their first year, so often times, median GPAs tend to be lower than at private schools.
Why would a public school try to "weed out" students? 
In Texas, for example, public schools, by law, must admit all students who graduate in the top 10% of their high school class. This of course admits students that went to bad school districts and just happened to be in the top 10%. So all freshman level classes are taught by profs who don't speak engrish in order to weed out the ones who can't teach themselves freshman level material.

Add ACORN to that list. 4 people have been indicted due to 40% of their 35,000 voter registration drive being fabricated in Missouri. :-\

Titles are optional. However the only title you should ever put on top of it is "Personal Statement"... NO titles like "My Great Epiphany"

I like it. Gives a chance for lesser known teams to get some exposure, and gives me something to do on a Wednesday night.

Personal Statement / How many times did you restart your PS?

I named each document PS1, PS2, etc. etc. and I think I've finally settled on PS5.

So should I drive a BMW or a Tahoe with my law salary?

Or perhaps get both. The former for the office and cocktail parties and the other for the weekend ski trips to our condo?

 :D :D :D :D :D
