Stanford Law Packet, are these real resumes and personal statements?

Postby ood » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:22 pm

I recieved a packet in the mail from Stanford and the Latino student association. It included an invitation to apply and a bunch of resumes and personal statements.

Are these just generic examples or are they resumes from admitted students?

Thanks for the help!

They seem to be real examples that the students allowed the admissions office to share. They use the name of a real Latino fraternity, which is a big no no in for us unless it's actually someone's who is in it.

It's good to know that SLS admits students with average writing ability.

It gives me hope. I'm sure they had the numbers to get in though.
