Let the Games Begin

September 17, 2009

Summer's over, school has started, and we've got the ball rolling for another admissions season!

This year, we've got a few new things up our sleeve. First, we're on Twitter, at www.twitter.com/ylsadmissions. Sign up to receive our tweets or toots or whatever you kids call it these days.

Second, this fall we'll be making e-visits to many schools in addition to our regular in-person visits. That means that if you are an alum or out of town (or stuck in a boring class), you can still tune in! If we won't be visiting your school either virtually or in person, you can meet one of our representatives at a law fair or forum in your area. Check out our recruiting schedule for more details (we're still in the process of scheduling many visits, so keep checking back).

Keep up on our blog for answers to your questions, events in and around the Law School, and more irreverent advice about how to navigate this nerve-wracking process. And as always, send your questions to 203blog@yale.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!

Dear Asha,

Does the main essay have a 500 word limit? I seem to recall reading this somewhere, although the instruction pop-up on the LSAC file doesn't seem to mention this.

Thanks very much,


In response:

The main essay (question #7) has a 250-word limit. The personal statement (question #8) has no word limit. It's most for common for us to see a length of about two pages, double-spaced.

This is a great idea. To have a Yale admissions twitter account. I've always thought that these things can be made much easier if you integrate them with existing services. Will follow you for sure!
