PS topic advice

Postby braves1 » Fri Jan 27, 2012 10:43 pm

Montana's application:
Personal Statements - Applicants must attach to their electronic applications two personal statements of no more than 800 words each.

1. The first statement should describe the applicant’s interest in the study and practice of law and in the University of Montana School of Law.

2. The second statement should describe an activity, event, or accomplishment and its relationship to the development of one or more of the applicant’s personal qualities (for example, writing and speaking skills, care and concern for others, initiative and sustained effort, commitment to political or moral principles).

I have already finished my first personal statement for other schools that I plan on using for the first montana requirement.
I am wondering if I could use earning the rank of eagle scout for the second requirement. I know it was received in high school, but I have been a troop leader on two occasions while in college in which I served as the adult leader in charge of 12 younger scouts on a two week hike through New Mexico.

Please let me know if you think this topic is a no go for the second one.

It's tough to say with no other options. Have you done anything else worth mentioning since then?
