Anybody keen to do a PS swap?

Postby euskadi » Sun Oct 09, 2011 6:09 pm

Admittedly, my personal statement is under construction. Before I spend a significant amount of time on the third draft, though, it'd be great to get a bit of feedback from some of you on TLS. If anyone is willing to take a look at it and let me know what she/he thinks, please do let me know. As noted in the title, I'd be more than happy to look yours over as well and offer as much help as time and cognition allow.

Thanks in advance!

Don't have one since I'm a 1L, but I actually enjoy giving feedback on PS'. PM it to me and I'll give it a look.

The offer still stands.

I'm also interested in knowing what most people think about drawing an explicit connection between what you show in the personal statement and your motivation to pursue law school. After skimming through Anna Ivey's admissions book, it seems like she generally considers the "Why law?" idea superfluous. But TLS wisdom seems to recommend drawing a clear connection to the legal field in the PS. I know that an essay that only discusses this question is inadequate, but do we need to make the connection explicit nonetheless? Or can it be left up to the adcomms to glean from the positive characteristics we demonstrate that we're fit and keen to study law?

Again, I understand that there must be some connection. But must it be so unambiguous?
