What is the Length Limit for USD Law Personal Statement

Postby dexyloo » Sun Jan 17, 2010 3:25 pm

Is there no limit? I cannot find a page limit for the personal statement for USD - anyone know this? My PS is three pages, but if it could run just a bit over that would be great.

Personal Statement
The Admissions Committee views the personal statement as an opportunity to evaluate the writing and thinking ability of applicants and learn more about their interests, personal background and concerns. Applicants should describe and discuss the aspects of your background, qualifications, experiences, activities, perspectives, etc. relevant to the criteria for selection set forth above. You may also wish to address:

why you wish to study law, setting forth your special qualifications
how you plan to use your legal training
any additional information you deem important for the Admissions Committee to consider



Short answer: no requirement...so you should be fine.
