Personal Statement Question

Postby admisionquestion » Tue Jun 14, 2011 11:52 am

Is it ever okay for a personal statement to cover many events/resume pieces...

I know the normal advice is do not make your ps a narrative resume... but the best way I can tell my story is to overview how many of the items in my resume fit together...

talk me out of it?

Any chance I could PM you it? I don't really want it posted in a thread.

Generally all law school personal statement advice suggests that one should steer away from summarizing your resume. Try writing a draft that draws from one of these experiences and see how this contrasts with your original piece.
