While it conveys honesty and modesty, I'm not sure it paints enough of a positive picture. If I were on the adcomm, I would wonder if you could handle the "tedious, redundant assignments" of law school, especially because you conclude saying these issues are not wholly resolved.

Don't use the PS to explain your study habits. Start over with a different topic.

This is really a tertiary concern, at best, since this PS pretty much needs to be torn up and thrown out entirely.
