DS about child abuse

Postby mid_life_crisisx10 » Sun Jan 03, 2010 10:05 pm

Anyone interested in reading a DS statement about physical child abuse and alcoholism from a nontraditional student? It's not a complete tear jerker. I'm considering this a complete, so a few last minute opinions are welcome.

totally valid as long as its done tastefully and you show you're emotionally stable. you've overcome some shit and adcomms need to know about it. but maybe i'm just biased because my PS was about emotional abuse and alcoholism... don't think so though.

I'd assume they would read the PS with the DS?!?! Anyhow, I PM'ed it. It's hard to post that kind of stuff. If anyone else is interested, send me a PM.

I suppose if your LSAT/GPA is at their median or below they might get a gist of your story while skimming it for Olympic gold medals
