Length of statement

Postby trayball23 » Mon Nov 15, 2010 7:39 pm

I got mine down to about 3.5 still trying to cut down but I saw alot of schools have 2 page limits. Will they actually not read it if its over?

It's not that they won't read it (which they may not)... it is that they want you to be able to write within guidelines, just like you will have to do in law school. And they also want to see if you'll follow the directions they've given to you.

Cut it to the 2 pages they've asked for.

if its still over 2 pages, you have too much fluff.

cut it down. If you need help, post it and people will give you their opinons.

best of luck
