Personal Statement format/length

Postby baum » Mon Oct 31, 2016 6:58 pm

Some law schools have a 2 page limit for the personal statement.

Does this 2 page limit include the space that your name and LSAC account number take up at the top of the personal statement?

Will they not even look at your essay/ count it against you if your personal statement happens to be 3 pages in length? What if the 3rd page only has like 1 line on it?

Thanks!

Use a header. and if you can't cut one line to make it fit on 2 pages then you won't make it in law school.
