Overcoming an obstacle P/S. Good or Bad?

Postby jcm043 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 11:27 am

My P/S tells the story of how a major occurrence in my life influenced me to apply to law school. The story explains how I kept my head high and began a quest to become an attorney. I also throw in what attracts my to X law school, very brief though.

I have been out of college for a few years, this occurrence began about a year and 1/2 ago. Before then, I had never had an ounce of desire to go to law school.


Do admissions committee like these type of statements?

Should I not mix the two types of P/S's? The Why XXX Law school & Overcoming Obstacle, and just focus on one??
