but instead about a thought I once had, and I never say what the thought was.

Will this work out well?

Yes. Guaranteed H with a free ride.

More seriously, how can anyone tell. If you want a critique, post your PS and folk will reply with edits that may or may not help. The only way to know if your PS works is to apply to law schools and see what happens.

This one time, a while ago, a guy wrote a speech about a dream he had. It's very well-regarded and I reckon that if he used the same speech, today, as a personal statement for law school (it might have to be edited for length just a little) I think it'd be a strong play. But most people can't write that well.
