I wrote about a project in high school that first got me interested in law school and then  how when I went to college I found accounting interesting so I decided to combine my two interests.  My statment is only a page and a half typed. Does anyone think this is too short?

No I don't believe that the quantity matters at all.  More or less the quality of the statement. Your approach in the Personal Statement is very unique and I think it will be treated as such, good luck in law school!  ;)


Need some help?

Wow.. what a great message board! I hope some of you experienced lads are reading this post from me...sooner the better! I want to hunker down some solid effort into the personal statement.

Anyone familiar with the SCALE program at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles? It's the only 2 year interdisplinary program approved for an ABA school, or so they claim.  As much as I'm interested in applying there, the limited acceptance to this particular program Has convicned me that my essay needs to be spotless! Stellar! Last year they only accepted 45 from the pool of 800. Actually total student body may have been about 300 total??

So, last night I wrote up a draft of my work experience -- overcoming some difficulty this year at the workplace. I read it over. I'm not happy. So, I started another draft of another job-related, emotionally tramatic experience. In fact, this whole year at work has been a tramatic experience. I guess I'd really appreciate some solid input from strangers since I don't feel comfortable having anyone I know personally to read it.

Does this make sense? Any excellent editing critic out there willing to read these sacred thoughts? Umm.. Help? Please email me. I think you can just click on my name. :)
