Sample admissions essays and critiques
« on: October 12, 2004, 06:49:55 PM »
Does anyone know where I can obtain sample law school essays/personal statements? Or salient advice/critiques for essays given by admissions officers? Hopefully this website or book will provide this information for free.

And also, is anybody using one of those essay editing services advertised online?  One of those sites that provide critiquing and editing services? Hopefully this information will be free as well.

In other words, what tools are you using to form your personal statement?

There are many sites on the internet where you can find sample essays on your law school. But remember that the best essays will interpret the evidence provided by explaining how each piece of evidence contributes to supporting the assertion. The best essays will also be clear, concise, and graceful.
