I am unable to accept any of my offers to law schools for 2011 because of unexpected problems pertaining to my family. I am going to try to get my favorite offer deferred but assuming that it isn't successful, I want to be ready to re-apply.
I feel my application was quite strong. My numbers were good but my personal statement and other softs were probably crucial in getting me accepted at various places. However, I applied quite late in the process (Mid December) and didn't even receive most of my offers until April.
My question is this: Do I have to write a new personal statement to re-apply to some of the schools that have already rejected me? I know it's much safer to write a new one, but sadly the PS I wrote for the last cycle was pretty exhaustive in outlining my credentials and unique perspective (work, diversity, and adversity all in one). Writing a new one would mean trying something that ignored my experiences entirely and focused on "the way I think" or some other type of statement. This year, I'm focusing on the same line of work I did last year so I have nothing new to add to my CV.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!
