It really just depends on how you go about writing it. My suggestion is to come up with a draft and then get some feedback on it. There's no harm in drafting something up to see if it works or not.

Good luck!

My work in financial planning was really at the intersection of business and law and thus my inspiration to go to law school and switch career paths.

My question is can I write about both jobs in my PS, or will having two jobs with little in common make the PS too crowded (and instead each would need to be its own topic)?

You can always try to use both and see how it works out. Just write up a draft and post it and we can tell you if it works/sucks or not.
