A school is asking for "why you want to attend ls in general...and our school specifically". I can't write that I am applying because it is local, easy, and my scores should get me free money. It's a shit school. They know why I'm applying.

Any ideas? Lol.

Be honest, but be more articulate. It's fiscally responsible, you appreciate the familiarity of the location, etc. Why would you have to say anything else? They are just testing whether you're serious or if they are wasting an acceptance/scholly offer on you.

I am trying to focus on location and a very good teacher:student ratio.

Appreciate the ideas. Keep them coming.

Go search their academic program, and course offerings. Even if they are an easy school and not great in ranking, if you want to go to law school, I am sure you'll find something there that appeals to you. Just talk about how these programs or courses excite you and how you are looking forward to bringing your thoughts to the table and seeing what your fellow law students have to share.... and so on.
