PS does not make a mention to law?

Postby iaiava » Wed Jul 13, 2011 6:15 pm

Is it okay that my PS does not contain the word "law" once?
I wrote about a defining experience I had, but it truly had nothing to do with my decision to attend law school.
Should I try and sneak it in as an underlying theme?

Probably not, but perhaps. Hard to say without reading it.

Completely okay. Its been proven over and over if you use the search function. It even says so on schools websites that it doesnt need to mention the word law

I took the exact same approach with my PS and came out the other end alright. You can illustrate the sentiment "I'd make a stellar law student" without overtly stating "I'd make a stellar law student."
