Violations for use of professional editing company?

Postby J_Kimlawstudent » Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:12 pm

I know this forum is for general advice on personal statements. I used a professional editing company to help structure my personal statement. I found it helpful. To my knowledge, it is not an academic violation to use such services. However, I wanted to check with the TLS community and see whether law schools have any issues with such services, and whether others have used the same?

From my understanding, there is no violation for using a professional editing company. If anything, it is using the resources at your disposal to improve your admission chances (in a small way). But, I wouldn't offer it as voluntary information, and I'm nearly 100% confident you won't be asked about it.

You'll have to disclose in your Yale app and no other T14 apps to my knowledge. Don't know about other law schools.
