Also looking to swap personal statements. I have a rough draft and I'm struggling with the "Why law school" aspect of a personal statement. PM me! I could edit also!

I wrote my last sentence of my first draft about 90 seconds ago, and I'm looking for people's impressions.

I'm a huge jerk when it comes to grammar, so if you're looking for someone to tear apart your grammar/syntax, I'd be happy to.

I am new the forum and struggling with my personal statement. I have been working on the same draft for about 2 weeks, but can't decide if it is on the right track. Would anyone be willing to look at it and let me know if they hate it or think it could work? I would be happy to read yours or help anyway I can in exchange.

I'm just wrapping up my first draft and would love for it to get ripped to shreds (in a reasonable manner of course!). PM me to swap.

Hello, I'm looking for someone willing to critique a school-specific PS. I'm in the final stages of writing, but would be happy to swap with anyone who needs help as well. Thanks in advance for your time!

PM me–I'll have yours back to you in no time!

I have my first paragraph done... need someone to evaluate before I push on, not sure how I feel about my topic, so this will help

I will read anything, full PS, whatever. Im aiming for t14, go to a top 10 school now if that matters (I dont think it does, but whatever)

Hey! I'm looking to swap personal statements. I've been through a few drafts and I think I like where it is now but I'm still tweaking it and would like some fresh perspective. I'm aiming for T14 schools. Disclaimer: I haven't climbed Mt. Everest, nor am I a musical protege, nor do I speak 5 languages. My PS is somewhat typical, but really there's nothing else I could or would write about. PM me if you'd like to swap! Gracias!

PS and Yale 250?

Postby ssteinway » Fri Nov 05, 2010 5:18 pm

I'd love some fresh eyes on my PS and Yale 250. I'm a pretty savage editor, if that entices you to want to swap. PM me if you're interested!
