Are you an applicant striving to produce a top-notch law school personal statement that will aid you in earning your place in the law school of your choice? Make a Statement is here to support your goals.
Because the personal statement is not standardized, it is arguably the most important item evaluated in a mostly subjective process (i.e. holistic process). After your LSAT score and undergraduate GPA have been considered, the personal statement is the most influential item in determining why you should be admitted.
For some law school applicants, their LSAT and GPA demonstrate that they can be successful in law school, but their personal statement demonstrates that they have no idea why they are applying to law school. At very competitive law schools, this can result in an applicant being denied or waitlisted for not being a “good fit.” For other law school applicants, their LSAT and GPA demonstrate that they would likely struggle in law school, but their personal statement demonstrates that they are passionate and intelligent. This can inspire a law school with the resources to support this type of student to offer admission. Of course, these are just two examples; countless other combinations exist.
If you are interested in creating a winning combination between your personal statement and law school “numbers,” allow a former law school admissions insider, the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Make a Statement, Jenifer Finney Godfrey, to lend her specialized knowledge to your personal statement drafting process.
