ABA Scholarship Personal statement confusion

Postby HarvardHopeful95 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 2:48 pm

Hey guys,

So on the ABA scholarship website, it says "Please limit your personal statement to 1,000 words and only use one side of the paper." What do they mean by this? In size 11 font (their limit) 1,000 words is three pages. Do they just mean don't make it double sided or don't make the entire thing more than one page?

They mean don't make it double sided. I'm guessing they haven't updated the requirements from when they wanted stuff through physical mail only

Their entire application is very amateurish for such an organization. They need a tech upgrade.

Were we supposed to receive a confirmation email when we submitted our application?

Has anyone gotten a confirmation email? Assuming we're just not under review but hoping mine didn't get looked over lol
