Post-Submission Personal Statement Advice

Postby hoyasaxa1789 » Sat Dec 04, 2010 5:28 pm

I submitted a couple applications to school with my personal statement obviously attached to it. I had many people read over, including several people who are in law school, and spent a ton of time editing it and so forth. All good comments. Seems fine.

Nobody said anything about the margins or font size. The essay is long, no doubt about it. It was 2 pages exactly with 10 pt font, 1.5 spacing, 0.7" side margins. I'm reading on here that some people say this is suicide.

So first, is this going to result in a complete rejection of my applications for the schools to which I applied? Second, is there anything I should/can do about the situation for these specific schools now?

Note that all the school to which I applied had no word-limits, page-limits, or formatting guidelines.

How many words is it?

Frankly, I don't know. I wouldn't worry too much about it, though, since it's not like you can take it back, anyway.
