Personal Statement, Letters of Recommendation
Personal Statement- Applicants submit a personal statement as part of the application process for almost all law schools. The purpose of the personal statement is to give you an opportunity to tell the school important things about yourself that are not addressed or apparent in the application. Admissions committees look for a concise, detailed, well-written statement revealing the applicant's individuality.
Letters of Recommendation- Letters of recommendation are used to demonstrate to an admissions committee that someone else, besides you, thinks you are a qualified candidate for law school. Most law schools require applicants to submit 2-3 letters of recommendation from professors or employers that are familiar with your intellectual abilities and leadership potential.
