Recently, I’ve been interviewed by Steve Schwartz of the LSAT Blog.
The following is an excerpt from our interview:
3. How much time should one spend revising a personal statement, and how can one tell when it’s *finished*?
It’s impossible to set a firm amount of time and have that work for everyone. Everyone works at different speeds and everyone has different amounts of free time available to them. So, whether it’s one month or an entire application cycle (about four to five months), one has to allot enough time to write multiple drafts and to revise and review appropriately. It’s also important to be honest with yourself about how much time you actually have, and to be realistic with your goals. Rushing should NEVER be an option.
