Georgetown Law School PS

Georgetown Law School PS

I just reviewed the instructions as well as the application form for Georgetown and it doesn't seem to indicate any sort of page limit for the PS.

Specifically, on the app. itself it reads: "You may write your PS on any subject of importance that you feel will assist us in our decision (please double space)."

Am I missing something due to sleep deprivation? I'm frantically trying to cut my 3.5 page essay for the other schools which limit to 2 pages max. Is Georgetown one of the few schools to which you can submit a PS of longer than 2 pages?

Even if they don't have a set limit, being concise is an attribute of law school writing that they'd be looking for, plus it's doubtful that they would pay much attention beyond the first 2 pages anyway. Keep it as short as you can while saying what really needs to be said.
