I couldn't say whether this book is marvellous or not; but for what I know, this book works. I got in, so I guess my essay, which I made with the help of this book plays a lot in getting me in.

A relatively useless book for those seeking help with their own personal statements.

This book consists of several short essays by students who applied to Harvard Law School. Each essay is about two pages long and is followed by a short critique by someone from the school newspaper. The essays are sorted by category. I found the book interesting and easy to read.
