I'm not looking for HYS. I'm looking for advice and that's guys comment didn't give any. Also, if it asks for a optional statement. Can I not just use my personal statement, making it longer, to answer both?
When they ask for an optional statement, they're asking you for something about something else. Adding more pages to your PS is not what they are asking you for. The law school application is not a test to see how "uniquely" you can interpret the rules and guidelines for your benefit.
