Getting Personal On The Personal Statement

I have a confession to make: My personal statement was awful. Just ridiculous and awful. I got into the school I wanted to nonetheless because of my LSAT score, and really only because of my LSAT score. With three years of law school since and many years after guiding students in the admissions process, I’ve learned a lot about what a winning personal statement looks like and what doesn’t.

From The Vaults: Should You Write a Diversity Statement for Law School?

Good law schools want a rich learning environment for their students. A rich learning environment involves the inclusion of different perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, and philosophies contributing to the dialogue, debate, and discussion in each class. Good law schools recognize that having a diverse student body is a benefit to all law students (and to law professors as well). The diversity statement is one way to see if an applicant would contribute to a diverse 1L class, because the application form may not give the law school admissions committee enough information about the applicant’s background and diversity factors.

You are not (entirely) an LSAT score.

A few weeks ago, we published a post about Wake Forest’s attempt to start admitting students with GRE scores instead of LSAT scores. At the time, the motives behind the effort seemed at least somewhat suspect. Law schools are ranked, in large part, according to the LSAT scores of their admitted students, so by padding out their numbers with GRE-takers, a school could be more selective among its LSAT applicants, thus improving their numbers and climbing the rankings.
