I was told by one person that a PS should be no longer than 500 words and by another 1,000 words is a good ballpark. Both are knowledgeable about law school admissions-- who is correct, all things considered?

Every school has its own requirements, so either could be right, depending on the application's directions.

Just follow the guidelines listed on the app. Some ask for less than 2 pgs, others word count but length is not indicative of quality. There are 15 previous threads that have already discussed this nonsense question.
