Dalhousie Law - Personal Statement Question


Recommended Posts

  • Applicant


I apologize if this inquiry has already been addressed - feel free to redirect me. For the Dalhousie application, the following is stated: 

While there is a suggested limit of 1200 words for the personal statement, applicants are encouraged to use whatever space is required to best represent yourself and your unique circumstances.

1,200 words is ~3 pages single spaced. I'm not that interesting, so I'm not too sure whether I'll be able to hit this word limit. I may just take one of the PSs I submitted to OLSAS and expand on some concepts or experiences, and that's it. 

Any and all advice will be appreciated.

sorry for the late reply, probably too late to be of value, but I did what you are proposing, just took my OLSAS personal statement and made it slightly longer (really just added some stuff about Dal).
