Georgetown Law does not have a minimum or maximum length for the personal statement, though we recommend around two pages double-spaced. You can write your personal statement on any subject that will enable the Admissions Committee to get to know you.

Optional Diversity Statement

Georgetown prides itself on actively recruiting students from diverse racial, economic, educational, and ethnic backgrounds. We encourage you to attach a brief statement to help the Admissions Committee understand the contribution your personal background would make to our community.
