Quantity hurting quality

Postby cinefile 17 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 12:29 am

Since I'm a splitter and I have a LSAC fee waiver, I am applying to 25 schools. As I continue to trudge along (right now I'm completing my 9th one) I become less diligent in proofreading them and my extra essays are becoming much more generic. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe it's just in my imagination.

You might should consider taking a day or so off. Don't do anything law related. Stay off of TLS. Let your mind clear a bit then get back to it. Half-hearted application essays are bad, unless you're an auto-admit. Then they're only slightly less bad :-)

Do the target ones first. Then safeties. Take a break, then do the reaches. You will catch mistakes and learn through doing, so hopefully your final few apps (for the reaches) will be better.
