Why X advice NEEDED!

Postby brinicolec » Fri Nov 18, 2016 4:31 am

Would it be bad to have somewhat of an anecdotal story leading into the "Why this school" portion? I know this is a really broad, probably unclear question but I honestly cannot think of a better way to phrase it.

I'm trying to write about public interest work being my interest and have a very specific case that made it obvious to me that it's something I'd be passionate about that happened in high school so I was going from an angle of talking about that case and how it's made me interested in the work and then transitioning into how X would be a great place for me to follow that passion but am worried that it may be kind of like a second PS if I follow this angle (though it's been the easiest Why X to write so far). My PS that I think I'm going to stick with isn't about why I want to go to LS specifically so talking about the PI stuff doesn't overlap at all with anything I've written elsewhere for apps.

Anyone have an opinion on this?

A good relevant story is always good.
