Get rid of the las two paragraphs. Lawschools dont want to know about "dreams" . You have to show good characteristics( which you did with scuba diving) trying to tell us your motivation

Just a quick thought: using the present verb tense in your opening paragraph didn't feel right. I think it would read better in past tense.

Yeah. He maintained it throughout that paragraph. Past tense would be better.
