Personally I think a conversational style is not appropriate for a PS

I was told by my consultant (who was dean of admissions for many yrs) that they dont want some academic PS with a dense prose.  Be insightful but clear.

Sup Jesus!  Paying homage to you in my avatar, brother!


Anyway, I second this post.  That said, it doesn't really clear up the question of tone.  You can be formal and not be dense. 

I'm curious to find out more.  I wish 1Ls would post in this thread, because my own PS topic demands a slightly more conversational tone, and I'm not really sure how far to stretch it.

You've already read it  ;)  Taking your advice, trying to find some more "mature" readers.

I can't claim to be mature at all, but I'd be glad to read it.
