What should a law student write in PS?

Postby BKB » Wed Jun 29, 2011 1:53 am

I'm am international student and my undergraduate major is law. I really like America's law education and am going to apply for JD.
I saw in many PS-tutoring books that it's not good to write about law directly;
but as a law student, it seems strange not to write about law.
I think there are several points I can write:
my initial motivation to study law, my love for law study during these years,
my future plan of law study, my fond of American legal education during exchange,
and my experience in the law firm (as an intern).
Which points do you think are best?
Or should I avoid writing about law altogether?
Any advice is welcome.

Just what it stand for: personal shit.


Sorry, I trolled you on another thread. Seriously though, just write about yourself. This is your opportunity to show the admission committee who you are.

Thank you. It's painful to produce this shit.
Actually I don't get your point in that thread.
