USC Personal Statement; general or why law

Postby triplem25 » Thu Jul 07, 2011 12:08 am

I found a previous post on this, but they ended up talking about Arrested Development instead.

Is the USC a why law essay or a general essay?

The USC site says:
"We are particularly interested in your motivation for studying law, your academic background, and qualities you possess that may enhance the diversity of our student body."

I'm thinking the last topic mentioned is the very general whatever you want to write about. My essay is an overcoming hardship essay illustrating low socio-economic status & strong determination/drive.

Also, is there any schools in the T14 that are "why law" other than yale's 250 word essay?

I was hoping to write one general PS, with just a couple targeted

I think there are a couple, but the Yale 250 isn't one of them
