Please research threads on PS's. This is not a personal statement!

no. Bad topic and bad statement. Reads like a resume and statement of purpose. Not a personal statement.

start over on another topic that shows who you are in an preferably non academic arena. This is because they already have academic/professional info about you through your resume, transcropt, and lsat score...show them a side of you that hasnt been covered yet

This is terrible. You should never mention your GPA or LSAT in a personal statement. EVER.

It should be way more focuses. You basically just go over your resume. No need to say things like your GPA or list every activity. Focus on one aspect of your life and explain how that shows who you are/why you want to go to law school.
