What would you say in your PS? I thought one of your themes was not yet having a theme?

Unless you come across a conservative/Wall-Street-friendly admissions rep, and then it is probably worth -10 LSAT points.

I think it might be worth that even if you have a liberal admissions rep. Who wants to admit someone who organized a "protest" against nothing in particular with no specific goals that hasn't accomplished anything?

+1 lol so much truth. They're all so pumped to declare war on 1% of the population... looks like just a bunch of (smelly) bullies to me. :lol:

Occupy Wall Street is a horrible topic. Respected academics think it is a joke. Every Professor I have talked to, all liberal, think it is amusing, but not legitimate, and not even a cohesive movement. I would not think a person who organizes a group of ignorant radicals should not write about it (fill in Tea Party movement, Occupy WS, Socialist Alternative). Almost as bad as someone writing about leading ACORN.

There is a US women's gymnastic olympic medalist applying... they interviewed her during one of the competitions this year.
