Do people have real great reasons for wanting to go to a certain school (asking related to "why x" essays)? I'm not asking for you to list them if anyone thinks I am trying to steal their ideas lol, just wondering.
I feel semi disingenuous writing them, but it's not like I don't want to go "x" school if accepted. FWIW I'm not lying like "THIS IS MY #1" and other stuff, but do people just find programs that they like and write about it?
Why X essays are the bane of my existence for this reason. I write about generic programs and whatnot, but I also try to find at least one unique thing I might be able to include to make it sound more ingenuous. A tip: try asking a current student at the school (maybe even in the "Ask a Law Student" subforum).

Many, many more hours than I expected. I was naive and thought I only had to work on my PS/DS/resume. didn't realize how many "optional" essays there were to do.
