Not so extraordinary personal statement?

Postby JJDancer » Sun Jun 27, 2010 4:23 pm

Does anyone care to share PS topics that have "worked" for them?

This is the first day I'm thinking about the PS and I don't have some crazy story of overcoming adversity, nor do I feel like ive accomplished a lot at my last internship (im fresh out of UG) so where do i begin to brainstorm?

Im hoping other people's topics can get the ball rolling in my mind on challenges i might have overcome or highlighting my qualities..

Write about why you want to go to law school and I don't mean a generic I like Law and Order essay. There is a reason that you want to practice law and the closer you can get to clearly and compellingly explaining that to an admissions officer the more interesting your essay will be to them.

So it's not about overcoming diversity, or saving kids in Africa. It is about why YOU want to be a lawyer. Do you have a good reason?
