topic of personal statement, sports

Postby jessica1 » Wed Dec 04, 2013 3:49 pm

hey guys

so im having trouble deciding what topic I want to write my personal statement on.
i would really like to know if anyone thinks this is a good topic and if law schools would like it

i have played tennis my whole life. i received a full athletic scholarship to play division 1 in a great school so i was thinking i wanted to show the quailties tennis has taught me like teamwork, discipline, problem solving skills, and being able to adapt to different situations. I want to show how those qualities will help me to become a great lawyer.

Im having trouble putting my thoughts into words.

any suggestions would help a lot

thanks! :D

Focus on one particular experience relating to tennis. Maybe a tough time you were having in a competition, or whatever. Just pick something that would be interesting to someone who knows nothing about tennis, talk about the experience, focusing mostly on your thoughts and how it affected you, and relate it somewhat to why you want to go to law school.
