Pointers? Suggestions?

Postby 052220151 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 8:36 pm

Hey all,

I have spent a lot of time lurking around PS posts trying to write the perfect PS. I have a feeling that when my LSAT comes back it will offset my less than stellar GPA, but a great PS might put me over the edge at some of my reach schools.

I decided to take a sort of unorthodox approach and write about cooking chili. It is something I have a passion for and I thought it would be a great vehicle to try and give potential admissions officers a good feel of who I am. I have revised it way too many times and have had a bunch of folks look at it and I keep getting responses that are sorely lacking or just not useful (hey man, you should just tell them why you'd be a good lawyer!, etc).


If you would you like to help me out, PM me. I am willing to put in my two cents on your PS as well.

Thanks in advance!

It really depends on whether your chili has beans in it, and what the admission people reading the PS feel about beans in chili.

Sure. I can take a look at it, if you like. :D

This sounds original! I would love to take a peak.
