You can absolutely do that. There is nothing informal or incorrect about using a school's abbreviation, especially when the school commonly uses the abbreviation themselves. For example, schools like Penn, BU, UVA, BC, etc. all use those abbreviations often. So there is no harm in you doing so as well. Plus it saves you valuable space in your PS. However, I agree with the post above me that it sounds good to write out the full name the first time you mention it.

dakatz, are you an authority on law school admissions? I don't mean that as confrontational in any way, but you are speaking rather authoritatively. Are you an admissions official? I only ask because, if you are, I might send some questions your way. Thanks.
