Which "why UMich" would be more valuable??

Postby jfb » Fri Nov 05, 2010 12:19 pm

So I visited Umich last year (I live about 30 mins from Ann Arbor), got the tour, sat in on a class and all. I wrote a why UMich essay based on that very positive experience, but ended waiting until this fall to apply. For other schools, I have written a why x based on their programs, clinics, etc. in the type of law that I am interested in studying, which I could also do for Michigan.

Which would be more beneficial, using the why x based on my visit and sitting in on a class, or writting a why x based on a particular program that interests me??

Please write a hybrid of the two, and you will have the best of both worlds.

Good luck!

Whatever you do, incorporate your visit.
