should i change the first name of a real person in PS

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Feb 01, 2014 5:55 pm

I mention someone (a real person) in my personal statement. I'm wondering if i should change their name in the PS? I use only their first name.

Not a big deal, but just wondering what is typical protocol for something like this on law school personal statements.

I used real names but I think it depends on your relationship with the person. In my case, it was my boss's name so I had no problem using it.
