How personal of a personal statement?

Postby thomasjmai22 » Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:20 pm

How personal should a personal statement be? My ps in not screaming "please feel sympathy for me" but it is very personal and direct.

Keep it classy and professional. 8)

If you have to ask "is this too much?" it probably is.

Well I ask because I am not very forthcoming about my past, but if the law schools want to know who I am, then it will be quite personal.

Are essay services a waste?

I never used one so I can't speak to their efficacy.

You could always post it on TLS and ask for feedback. If you don't feel comfortable posting, PM your idea and I'll give you my insight about it.
