Hold Category - Second Personal Statement...What do I write?

Postby legalmaestro » Mon Feb 20, 2012 3:39 pm

I'm currently in the "hold" category at UMiami and it's my first choice. The letter says I can/should submit any other pertinent information including updated grades/LSAT scores or a personal statement not included with my original application. In my first statement I discussed how ADHD impacted my life and when I discovered that I had ADHD and began taking medication in college my life was changed...grades went up, I have a masters with a 3.9GPA, etc. I also tagged a why Miami to the end of that statement...

I REALLY want to get in to Miami but don't know exactly what to write about...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well what other personal experiences do you have? Anything in your background that made you into the person you are today and how it will help you not only in law school, but as a lawyer.
