2 personal statements. Conflicted. Help!
« on: October 14, 2007, 03:46:12 PM »
Before, I posted my first personal statement that some of you generously helped me on and gave me mostly positive comments. Then I took it to my professor and he absolutely hated it! He told me to be more serious and write about my activities and "Why law?" So I went back to the drawing board and just finished a second personal statement. I will really appreciate advice on how good/bad it is.

If you're willing to help, I will PM you both of my statements. Thanks!  :)

I can give them a quick read if you'd like.  Just FYI, most professors have been in an entirely different system (Ph.D) that uses a statement of purpose rather than a PS.  Don't worry about not answering the question.
