statement of purpose instead of why x

Postby BillsFan9907 » Thu Jan 16, 2014 4:31 am

What's the consensus on writing a statement of purpose (why law school) instead of why x?

I'm not seeing a meaningful way to write a why X without talking about my goals in law school, and those are pretty extensive and concrete.

As a personal statement, it's fine. As an addendum, don't do it
