Personal Statements

A personal statement is usually two-to-three pages long and explains why you want to go to law school. Schools take these seriously and a poorly written personal statement can be one of the reasons why your application is rejected.

The Office of Academic Advisement has several reference books, handouts, and a binder of sample personal statements. The director of Academic Advisement also meets with students to review their personal statements.
