Personal Statement: schools that use different prompts?

Postby sillymike » Thu Oct 24, 2013 7:54 pm

Some schools have different personal statement prompts, correct?
How can I tell if a school wants a specific one? I'm on like my 10th app and I haven't seen any with a different prompt, just making sure i'm not missing something

will it say in the personal statement section, like where you upload?

thanks

I would double check all the application instructions listed on the websites of the schools. Most of them are really similar but a few of them have a twist that will require that you say "Why Law" or that you say something about why you would fit in at their school specifically.

I hate Florida for asking specifically for an ACADEMIC STATEMENT and Florida State for an essay under 500 words.

You're probably not missing much. I sent the same PS to 20 schools and did fine.

The 500 word limit at some schools is rough! My guess is that schools that require 500 word PS's are more numbers-oriented than others..
