Reuse PS for next cycle?

Postby charcop » Mon Feb 01, 2010 7:38 pm

So i've already had some acceptances to some good schools for this cycle but am considering holding off school for another year and applying to better schools next cycle if I can approve my LSAT score substantially. If I apply to different schools than the one i've already applied to for next cycle, can I still reuse my old PS?

Oh, and I've been told by others that it's a pretty darn good PS too :)

If the schools are different, why not? Make sure that it's still accurate when you reach that point, though; it's possible that you will have had another experience in the meantime that would make an even better topic for a PS. If so, don't be afraid to write a new one.

Why can't you reapply to same schools with same PS?

That's what I did, although I did change it a bit (that's what happens when you go back to stuff you wrote months ago). I got accepted to some schools that dinged me before, so it certainly didn't have a negative effect.
