1. For some of my applications in the bio section, I can only add four digits of my SS# instead of the full #, is that normal? I would suppose it would be the last four digits if this is the case, but I'm unsure if I have some sort of glitch or something.

2. For Cornell's required who influenced you to apply to Cornell question, what type of answer did you put? I listed the name of a law professor who teaches there whose work is of particular interest to me. Other than that, I can't say someone in particular who influenced me to apply there...


1. For the apps I couldn't type in my whole SS# it was usually already listed from the first app you completed. Meaning you don't have to input the numbers anymore. You should see the last four digits of your SS# above the box.

2. For my Cornell app I listed a friend of mine who recently graduated from Cornell. And a current 2L at the law school.


Nice, thanks!

Is 700 words too short for a personal statement?

Is that roughly two pages? Either way, quality over quantity.

700 words are sufficient if it is of high quality. You don't want your personal statement to ever sound forced just to add more words.

No way! I would rather have 700 meaningful words than 1000 space fillers. You got this tosh!

Everything I've read says don't go over 2 pages, which is like 500 words Times New Roman. Is the two page limit suggestion BS or the unwritten rule?

A lot of applications limit your PS to 2 pages, just a suggestion to make it easier
