Personal Statement Gimmick, Good Idea?

Postby MarcusAurelius » Wed Oct 10, 2012 9:39 pm

Has anyone here ever used the IRAC method on their personal statement? I am thinking about trying this, but I would like some second hand feedback before I do something too innovative

I cannot overemphasize how bad of an idea this is.

My uncle is a lawyer who graduated from Quinnipiac Law, a pretty high ranking school near where I live. From what he's told me, it can never hurt to be a little creative

For example, he wrote his personal statement about the trials and tribulations of being a teen bed-wetter, how he overcame such a hardship, and how the experience made him thirst for a law degree.
