Quick Writing Sample Question

Postby kalvano » Mon Dec 17, 2012 1:10 am

If a judge wants a writing sample of a specific length, and mine are generally shorter, better to combine two memos or go with one sample that's not quite as good?

Your question is confusing. It's better to have it be shorter than requested and better than the max length and shit.

Based on how you wrote this question, I would suggest submitting a writing sample someone else wrote.

I'm not sure what's unclear about what I wrote. If a judge wants a writing sample of a specific length and my samples are shorter than that, should I combine two memos to make one longer sample or should I find a longer, but not quite as good, sample?
