Personal Statements. Individualized or not?

Postby Theopliske8711 » Wed Jul 03, 2013 11:46 am

To those already in law school, how did you go about it? I certainly don't care for the idea of doing a dozen different ones, but whatever if it needs to be done it needs to; however, I am wondering if that is how you go about it?

I wrote one, put it on here, and it got destroyed. Wrote another, same (to a lesser extent). Another, same (to a lesser extent). Another, same (to a lesser extent). Then I mixed and matched the best parts of them, along with some stretching of the truth (or at least not telling the whole of it), and came to a pretty good PS.

Took four weeks for me.



ETA; didn't read/think about the title, lol. Personally, did not individualize. I can see it being helpful for some, like if you say there's some particular clinic of theirs or w/e that you want to join, but otherwise I wouldn't really bother.
