You should think about an MBA instead. And I don't say that to be sarcastic. For the PS, you are trying to say you are a hard worker but the essay is unconvincing. What it does convince me is that you take tremendous pride in your work. If I was reading your application, I would counsel you to continue on your current path.

If you insist on going to law school, you should rewrite this and make the thesis about something other than working hard. Because working as an AM 2-3 days a week does not really sell it. Consider something else. I think it is interesting that you would stay in a position with such high turnover for seven years. That says a lot about you as a person. It is not sexy, it is successful. Make a theme about being ready to go day in and day out while your competitors are still sleeping.
