I have a rough *rough* draft but I would love to swap personal statements with someone so that they can tell me if I should just try something completely different. PM me/email me?

Yo. Keep the PSs coming. sent it via pm on the first message so we can accelerate the process a bit.

Also, I think it may be helpful in evaluating your PS if I knew a bit more. For example, if someone centers their PS on something family-related, but they have a 3.9 and a 169, then that's acceptable. But if someone has a 2.8 and a 155, then it might not be. So, include:

GPA
LSAT (or projected score, be honest!)
Schools you are applying for
Your most impressive softs.

When the adcomms evaluate your PS, they can access these things, so we should too!

Anyway, Cheers. Keep 'em coming.

Interested in reading PSs as well. I have started on a 2nd draft of mine and am in dire need of guidance! I've read tons of samples but am not sure about mine.

If anyone is interested in critiquing/reading mine, PM me and I would of course be glad to review yours.

I have a first draft of a personal statement and I think swapping with someone for critiques would be helpful. If you're interested PM me.

Looking for some help in deciding whether the direction I am headed in is appropriate, or if I should just choose another method of attack. My PS is very rough, with some disconnected ideas casually floating around, but I would appreciate any advice you are willing to provide. I would of course return the favor with the same dedication I apply to my own.

Yo, I have a brief 250-word response question on which I´d like to have some feedback. I´ll critique your PS, or whatever, in exchange. PM me the document and I´ll get back to you ASAP. Include your LSAT score and GPA so I can have some context on which to critique it.

Cheers

First draft is done. It's a skeleton draft at 390 words so I might need to add more, but I'd love any help possible.

I can proof PS's line by line. PM me if you want to swap.
