Why Duke? essay question....

Postby tdicks » Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:18 am

ok, so maybe it's because i'm really sick of writing these things and i'm looking for a way out, but.... duke's essay prompt is about why you want to go to law school in general and duke in particular, and says there's no reason to do it if you've covered it in your PS. i covered why i want to go to law school in general in my PS, but not duke in particular... best not to write that essay in order to not be redundant??

i could make my PS a few lines longer if i wanted... should i just make a duke specific PS and call it a day? or just forget the duke specific stuff altogether? how important is it?

I wrote one just because if felt necessary but it was just super generic. Looking at LSN I probably shouldn't have gotten rejected SO I'd do your best to write a good one.
