UGPA 3.87

so I am trying a rewrite because I am not really happy with my original PS at all... no matter how I change it.

I was thinking about talking about:
- how my parents move away as I started college (from PA to GA) and I had to buy a house, get full time job, etc. to finish my undergrad.
or
- how I almost lost my house in a tax sale due to the head of my county's tax claims bureau stealing the money I had paid (not really sure how to stretch this out for 2-3 pages or how to include things such as leadership ability or hard work, etc)

Any input is greatly appreciated as I will probably be doing this all night for the next few days to get in some more apps by March 31.



What do you guys think?


seriously? retake the LSAT and get your apps in at the very beginning of next cycle. you are shortchanging yourself if you follow through with this cycle.

#1 retake
#2 don't write on those topics
#3 if you still have nothing by May, do some traveling/start a new meaningful experience and with it in mind write why you want to go to LS
