Come to a free workshop to learn about the law school
personal statement and how to write one on Saturday, November 9, 2013, from 10:00 a.m.
to 2:00 p.m.
Aside from LSAT scores and grades, the personal statement is
the most important part of a law school application. Nearly all law
schools require that applicants submit a two-page personal statement along with
their law school application. Admissions officials do read personal statements, and the
statements do matter. The personal statement is an applicant’s best
chance to set herself or himself apart from the hundreds (or thousands) of
other applications being reviewed by an admissions committee.
Topics covered in the workshop
Besides learning about the
components of a personal statement and tips for writing one, workshop attendees
will read and evaluate sample personal statements. The workshop also
includes a brainstorming session and other exercises to help students come up
with and develop a theme for their own personal statements.
The workshop is free, but
you need to register by sending an e-mail to Kyleen at email@example.com
by Thursday, November 7, 2013.
This workshop is sponsored by IUP’s Pre-Law Program, the College of Humanities and Social
Sciences, and the Political Science Department.
