How much do Tier 3-Tier 4 schools value personal statements?

Postby bdm261 » Mon Oct 29, 2012 10:22 am

I reviewed my personal statement that I submitted to a few Tier-3 schools and I am really disappointed with it. It's just crap. It seemed a lot better at the time I wrote and sent it in, but now it just looks terrible.

I have ok LSAT and ok GPA for the schools I applied to. How important is the PS outside of T-14 or even T-100 schools? If I get rejected, will it be because of my PS?

How does HYS feel about PS though?

OP I don't think you find much insight to those schools here but I will say you should consider not going unless you have substantial scholarship

Believe me I have heard all the warnings about the Tier 3 schools and I'm going anyways. In my case, I'm going to the LS that's a mile down the road from my house and just about every local attorney I know went there, I currently work at a firm and have a good number of legal contacts so I can at least hope for a FT job in the legal industry and I don't expect to make 6-figures, my debt won't be 6 figures either, though.
