Is anyone else seriously struggling to write their personal statement? I feel like I cannot even think of a good topic, let alone write something quality.

sorry for being a few pages late, but ya caught me. I'm guilty of lurking. Love that description. The rain afterwords wasn't what I would call ideal. I was hoping wearing my fraternity sweatshirt would bring me some good luck.

im also in begin-to-write-PS mode...and have yet to begin. this aint easy. how unique could we possibly be? what could we write that hasn't been written before?

nothing...

I wrote about my background/childhood, but as shown by the PW's last night, its kinda unique.

That's sooo funny. Jeez there's so many nova people. Did you go to nova too? Or just took the test there?

if only i could get to the interview step pep! im abnormally confident in my interview abilities for no reason at all, so id love to get to that point.

to the rest of TT: i dont have a compelling "why i want to be a lawyer" origin story that would make a great PS...what would you guys say are other viable topics?

Have you taken any cool trips?

this guy wasnt from nova cause he was talking about how "this building" (bartley) was so much nicer than june's building (tolentine)

sorry i eavesdropped but your voice was quite loud :D

and that circle scarf girl was pretty...attractive...it was distracting man


Tolentine is an embarrassment. Now I'm even more upset I might have to retake because I refuse to take it there. Why not Mendel??? Or Driscoll??? ANYTHING but Tolentine

I'm not using my "Why I want to be a lawyer" story, because I feel it's super cliched. Well, maybe not cliched. It just seems so...sappy, I guess. In the most vague terms possible: I'm writing about an experience that allowed me to see that I possessed a strength I had not been utilizing. So I started utilizing it and will do so in lalw school, too.

(Spoiler: That strength is being a bamf. nbd).

ETA: This experience is very, very unique and I guarantee that if adcoms have ever heard it, it's been maybe .005% of the essays they've read. I guess I've got that going for me.

i interned at a corporate firm in korea...maybe i could spin that somehow? :shock:

Yes. Absolutely. Just talk about what you learned and if you realized anything about yourself or what you want out of life. Talk about any rough adjustment and how you handled it, language, culture, etc.

I'm trying to decide what to write about without sounding like a total douche.. I feel like my ego pours through each word when I write about myself.. but then again.. I guess that's what being awesome is all about.. SMH!
