Views on tayloring the statement to each law school
« on: August 15, 2008, 06:44:20 AM »
What are your thoughts on tayloring each statement to each program you are applying to? Does it really make that much difference? I have read advice that suggests one should taylor the statement, but I am struggling with doing so. I don't want to sould like I am just interjecting XYZ law school into the statement and I don't want to have to redo the entire statement! Any thoughts?

Of course its better to tailor the PS to the law school.  One way to do it without rewriting is to have a single paragraph that is unique to each school (why you want to go there) and the rest remains the same.

That said, at most schools admission is based on 80%:LSAT; 19%:UGPA; 1%:other.  So it probably won't make much of a difference.

Tayloring isn't a good thing these days....I don't think law schools are big fans of slavery (although U Texas may appreciate the war with Mexico)
Best of luck to everyone!

This is by far the funniest post I've ever seen on a law school discussion board.
