Old Personal Statement or New One?

Postby picklebarrel » Mon Oct 11, 2010 3:41 pm

I almost applied to law school last year but decided to take a break. In the meantime, I have been working at a law office and also trying to write my personal statement. Since I don't have as much time as I did before, it's pretty difficult to focus on writing the personal statement again. Anyway, I'm wondering whether I should write a new personal statement to account for my new experiences or just keep and revise the old one, which is focused more on my academic experiences. I don't want to bore you, so I won't post the old statement. In short, it discusses an important moment in my academic career: a research paper that forced me to abandon some of my deeply held beliefs in favor of pragmatic solutions. I haven't gotten too far on a personal statement since then, but if I were to write a new one it would probably focus on my post-college experiences. Any help would be appreciated!
