Bad idea. Write a personal statement not a brief. Adcoms will think you're a prick who's not actually clever.

Wow. I think you debunked your thesis of making a cogent argument. That was painful. You spent 4 paragraphs telling the reader you are the best debater in the world. That won't get you far.

This is crucial! Admission committees love puppies! Proven fact!

It is unique, explain more and give better reasons why you think I should not use it. Not just "you will get rejected".

It's "unique" in the same way Sarah Palin's special kid Trigg is.

It's gimmicky. If you have to use something flashy to get your message across, then it probably means that your message isn't that great in the first place.

Please don't send this to a law school. Re-write a traditional statement then re-post, there are people on here who will be willing to offer constructive feedback. The best advice for this ps has already been given. Delete it off your computer and start over.

I have never seen so much win in one essay. You are the next Clarence Darrow.

I hope you just found this somewhere and reposted it, and that you didn't actually waste time writing all that up just to flame.

Why would I post this as a joke. No I did not find it anywhere and yes I am serious about using this PS. I need honest opinions. I took a few days to write this up. I though it would grasp the attention of admissions since most PS have same format and very traditional.

Writing your PS in this form makes you look like you are trying to be slick, rather than honest.

Please write it in the form of a personal narrative--this is my honest opinion.
