Thanking committee at the end of statement?

Postby jjames » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:10 am

I had my personal statement reviewed by someone who works at my LSAT prep course and she suggested that I thank the committee at the end of my paper?

This sounded a little strange to me and I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts?

Thanks for your help!

also, don't take any of that person's other advice per law school either. they apparently have no idea what they're talking about, but think they do.

...haha sounds like a good deal of TLS actually (including me sometimes :oops: )

I sent the committee a thank you card after my acceptance. I probably wouldn't include something so informal in my PS.

Thank you for the replies everyone! I knew it didn't sound right. I am not going to thank them in my personal statement.

Good Luck everyone!
