Admissions committees will use your personal statement / essays, and other addenda to evaluate your “fit” for their law school, as there is usually no formal interview process. The Pre-Law advisor will critique and offer feedback on these documents if you wish. Personal Statements / essays usually invite you to answer a specific prompt in order to learn more about you and your communication and writing skills. Addenda offer you an opportunity to explain any discrepancy or item of concern in your application materials, such as your LSAT score or poor grade(s) on a transcript.
