University of Florida Academic statement

Postby ttunsehc » Sun Aug 28, 2011 8:51 am

Anyone have any idea how long the UF Academic Addmissions Statement should be?

Best regards,

Doesn't it say on the website less than 4 pages?

But what would the minimum be?

Is 1.5 pages too short?

I'm pretty sure it said 2-4 pages. I sent in the same statement I sent everywhere else.

Nope, this year it just says
To better assess such qualities, the Levin College of Law requires each applicant to write an Academic Admissions Statement not to exceed four double-spaced pages in a font no smaller than 12 pt.

Just curious, did you write an academic statement? I'm wondering because I'm writing mine and although I am trying to follow UF's guidelines, I'm not sure it's academic-based enough.

What about that graph makes you think anything other than LSAT and GPA matters? Show them a moderate amount of interest and you'll avoid being the random red dot in the sea of green.

I sent them the same 2 page, non-academic statement I sent every school. It's a numbers game.
