Question about PS topic
« on: June 03, 2005, 08:33:19 AM »
I am applying to a law school which has as the directions for the PS:

"A statement no longer than three typed pages (double spaced, 12 point font) written by you, including information about your distinctive qualities, talents, achievements, and life experiences."

My question is:  Do I need to answer every part of this question or can I concentrate more on one or two of my "distinctive qualities, talents, achievements, and life experiences"?

Because the one I have written uses "life decisions" as a theme, it concentrates a bit more on how I got to this point in my life as opposed to a deep investigation of my qualities, talents and achievments (although there is a bit of most of that in my PS as well)

My concern is the word "and" in the description.  If it said "qualities, talents, achievements, or life experiences"...I'd feel a bit more confident.  I am just not sure how much more diversity I can fit in to the three pages without losing a sense of coherence.

Many thanks for your help.

If you talk about life experiences, you should answer the other parts. Your PS sounds like it is what it needs to be.
