question about personal statements

Postby lawschool111 » Sun Oct 06, 2013 5:09 pm

So I took this past February LSAT and applied in March, and heard back from most schools in April.

I took this past October LSAT, and so i will be re-applying again...i'll be applying to new schools and to some of the schools that i was rejected to previously.

My personal statement is very unique, and definitely sets me apart from the rest of the pack. My letter of rec's are strong as well. My question is for the schools that i was rejected to do I need to write a new personal statement, or do i simply just re-apply?

I'm really hoping I don't have to write another personal statement.

Can anyone please advise? Thanks!

Write a new one. At the very least, make significant changes to your old one.

Where are you applying? For most schools, leaving your PS substantially or entirely the same won't make any difference. That's not necessarily the case for the very top schools, however.

i don't think i will be applying to T14.

i don't know what else i can talk about if i was to write a new personal statement. the personal statement that i wrote was very strong. it would only make sense for me to re-write if i could re-write and make it significantly stronger, but I don't believe i can.

Then it's extremely unlikely that using the original PS will cause you any problems.
