GWU get rid of 500 word limit

Postby jarofsoup » Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:43 pm

I look at the GWU webpage and it said two pages. So I guess the updated this?

How long should my personal statement be? http://www.law.gwu.edu/Admissions/JD/Pages/FAQ.aspx

Please keep personal statements to two pages, doubled-spaced.

Am I missing something?

What, exactly, do you think you are missing?

The website said two pages, and the link you posted said two pages.

Not really anything to miss.

Yeah, I don't see what you're talking about... unless you are confusing the PS for a "Why GW?" or DS length requirement?

Yea, he is. George Mason has a 500 word limit for their personal statement.

He is also confusing "get" with "got." I'm not nitpicking, the distinction changes the meaning of the thread title completely.
