Title Personal Statement

Postby ttunsehc » Fri Sep 16, 2011 11:10 pm

Should I title a personal statement and diversity statement?

I was not going to title them but when I looked at the PDF of some applications there was no way to tell the difference between the two statements.

What does everyone think?

I suppose that if there's no way to differentiate between them, then yeah I'd specify which one is which.

Hi,

Since you want to make the life of the AdComm as easy as possible, I would title it as follows:

First Last Name | Diversity Statement LSAC #: -------------


I would also put this in the Header of the Document. Hope this helps.

I usually recommend that applicants do not title their essays; however, sometimes someone has a funny or unusual title that works, and they choose to go that route. Sticking with the standard header is the normal procedure, however, and no one is expecting you to provide a title for your essays.

best, Dani
