Virginia Personal Statement?

Postby ZSR10 » Wed Jan 05, 2011 7:10 pm

Ok so I cannot find anything on length on the application itself and there is no instructions/checklist on the LSAC page. Two or three pages?

Read the application document itself.

I am looking at the application right now and it doesn't say anything unless I have some sort of mental block and can't see it.

Looks like they have no limit.

Typically when they dont specify, they mean 2 pages. When they do specify (like UCLA with its 12 pt, 2 pages) make sure you stick to those limits

After reading many on here, I never read a long one that was good. There's always a way to shorten a long PS. I think 2pg 12pt font is max. Even when I did mine in 2pg 11pt, I found stuff could still be cut out.
