Hey guys,

I have finally finished the umpteenth draft of my PS. I'm looking for someone to swap with within the next few days. I have experience as a Writing Tutor at my university if that makes swapping with me any more appealing. I am a K-JD 164/3.67 applying to a few schools before my December retake. PM me if interested!

Hey everyone. 3.98/163, retaking. I have a PS that I'd like some eyes on now to know if it's headed in the right direction. I may end up waiting a cycle, but in that case I'd have loads of times for rewrites...

Readers with no arts background of any kind would be particularly helpful for checking clarity/understand-ability.

Thanks!

I know it's a long shot, and I've already had a couple people look at it, but is there any chance somebody could swap PS's with me and have mine back by tomorrow evening, i.e. 12/27 sometime in the late afternoon? 176, 4.x PM me, of course

Update: somebody took me up on it so I should be all set.

If anyone is willing to swap or simply review mine please PM me! :)

Edit: I have decent stats but haven't written in a long time and am really gunning for some T14 schools to offset the fact that i'm a splitter. Thank you in advance!!

I would love feedback on my personal statement. Constructive criticism is always welcome, especially if there are any grammatical errors that stick out. Also, I am worried about it being too personal, so any thoughts or advice is appreciated!

I have sat down countless times in an attempt to write the perfect personal statement to sum up a life-altering event I have experienced without describing it in an especially bleak manner. This event is the divorce of my parents. Prior to its occurrence, I had always believed divorce to be not especially impactful. I was proven wrong.
Near the end of my junior year of high school, my mother informed me that her twenty-year marriage to my father was coming to an end. I saw completely different sides of my parents. Frequent violent attacks and police calls became the new norm. Both of my parents had substance abuse disorders my entire life, but it was heightened to a new extreme. I was afraid to be home. I moved into a motel about twenty miles away with my sister and her boyfriend. Several of my classmates lived in the motel with their families, and we rode the bus together to school.
A couple of months passed, and the school year was coming to an end. I had asked my grandparents to move into their home with them. They more than welcomed me, and the last day of school they helped me pack and move my things into the attic of their cozy one-bedroom home. Their house was nearly 300 miles from my school and in an affluent area, so I had to change school districts. I left behind the chaotic life I had known for one of stability and opportunity.
I quickly started working two part-time jobs that I rode my bike to. The independence was bliss. Shortly afterwards, my mother moved into my grandparents as well. She struggled with many emotional stressors, and she struggled to achieve sobriety. Meanwhile, my father estranged himself as he engaged in a relationship with my cousin [should I include this?]. Our neighbors heard of our circumstances and placed homemade signs labeled ‘white trash’ in our front yard while we were away. Although this blatant discrimination was hurtful, none of us were angry as our morals prevented such feelings of hate. [add more? Is this section relevant/appropriate?]
Despite these obstacles, I always made my coursework a priority. Because of this, I graduated near the top of my class. I enrolled in Wayne State University during this time as a first-generation college student, and I accepted a full-tuition scholarship.
For a couple years of college, I worked full-time while taking a full-time course load to offer financial support to my mother. While there were stressful moments, I enjoyed the life we had created for ourselves. In my junior year, my mother began attending self-help groups. She has since achieved sobriety and financial independence.
My adolescence may be unconventional, but I am tremendously fortunate for my experiences. It has instilled in me a strong sense of empathy for others regardless of their circumstances. My family describes me as exceptionally self-motivated and ambitious. I am also very humbled to have been afforded the opportunity to attend [insert university name] law school, a prospect most people from my background will never have.
