Why X essay for American.

Postby jarofsoup » Sun Aug 01, 2010 11:19 pm

I am working on a personal statement for American U.

I want to go to the school because it is in DC, I want to study Administrative Law.

Would targeting professors and say they attract you to the University be wise?

I basically love DC, want to eventually be on a counsel for a fed gov agency. Should I outright say this?

I am ED to American and my #s are very borderline.... I am retaking but that wont help me for an ED.

Internships with the federal government can be a boost to your education.

Rad law

You are a very debt adverse poster. Thats okay but I have a different point of veiw. I cannot find a job. I am going to night school full time in Cali. Applying to work all day long. I applied for a two day temp position and there was intense competition for it. For two days of temp work.... at $10 an hour.

I want to go to grad school and I dont care about the debt(perfer not to have it). I do not have any undergraduate loans to worry about.

But I do need advice on writing this statement. The debt is a more personal choice.

The advice I gave you is probably more helpful than the advice you're gonna get about your PS.

But best of luck.
