Length of PS

Postby jpal13 » Fri Oct 14, 2011 9:23 am

My PS is about 2 1/4 pages, I think content is more important than quantity HOWEVER should I attempt to may it a little longer? I have a nice flow and I don't know what paragraph I would add.

You might actually want to shorten it as a lot of law schools seem to cut it down to 2 pages. But if you want I"ll look at it and be the judge. :)

Ok I am at 2.5 pages but the consensus from people I have pm'ed is that I should be shorter. So my question now is, 2.5 pages too long?

2.5 pages may be too long-- some schools ask for 2 pages flat, others ask for a cool 700 words which might get you by. Double-check with your schools to be sure.
