asking for PS tips

Postby alanbfish » Sat May 29, 2010 8:19 am

Hi, I am applying for cycle 2011, and am a phd candidate in chemistry,also I am a foreign student with chemistry and psychology undergraduate degrees. Shall I talk about the things I do in my phd study and how I succeeded in solving the problem? Is this a good selling point in my PS?

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

The best personal statement is a really good LSAT score

yes. If, for example, you want to do patent law, then this is a great idea and is something you could write about in a PS.
