USC Personal Statement

Post by aquarium_drinker » Tue Oct 14, 2008 2:24 pm

USC's application says that you must submit a personal statement, but It doesn't specify length. Does anybody know what to do in this situation? Do they expect the standard 2 - 3 pages?

A rep at the forum told me to write about my work experience since I've been out of school for a while and not to add in anything else--so my guess is that while there is no limit, 2 pages should suffice. He said the school loves/prefers addenda in addition to that PS.

After reading USC's requirements it seems to focus a lot on why you'd thrive in law school and work experience - this seems quite different than what a lot of other schools have been asking for.

Any thoughts on a statement catered to USC, did I just read the instructions wrong or is it really another beast in itself?

Bump!

I am trying to get my USC app in by the 30th to get the fee waiver. Does anyone have any insight on its PS requirements?

Unrelated, but has anyone notice the obvious amount of Arrested Development fans on here? It makes me smile.

Love it! I'm really hoping that they actually come out with a movie, and it's amazing.

I heard quite the opposite; I remember Michael Cera saying in an interview that he wouldn't go for it. :(
