I have been brainstorming PS topics for several weeks and can't fully decide which topic to choose. Academics: GPA 3.88, LSAT 158, Agricultural major.
My target school is UGA where median LSAT/GPA is 162/3.71. I am re-taking LSAT in June. I am from a large family, son of a mailman, and was raised in a small town with a population of less than 500. I am a recipient of a $38,000 national scholarship which has allowed me to attend leadership summits on both sides of the coast. The first summit allowed me to fly in an airplane for the first time. Also, I have served on multiple political campaigns. Some life changing events were when I almost died in an accident when I was 5 and when my family adopted a foster child in my teens. When I was 18, my girlfriend and future wife became pregnant. I promptly married her and became a dad at the end of my first semester in college. This has changed my outlook on life, humbled me, and prompted me to dedicate my life to them. I know this a lot of information and a variety of mixed personal information. I would appreciate any ideas on how to choose and narrow down a topic. Thank you so much!

You come across as a humble person, so I think talking about small beginnings and how your humbleness and ability to be flexible about life prepares you for law school. Maybe focus on that event in your life that changed your life perspective.

Personally, I'm interested in your statement:
"When I was 18, my girlfriend and future wife became pregnant. I promptly married her and became a dad at the end of my first semester in college. This has changed my outlook on life, humbled me, and prompted me to dedicate my life to them."
And would like to hear how this experience has changed you. Maybe you could also make a connection to why you want to go to law school.
Attending the summit sounds cool. If you can also make a connection, include it. Otherwise, it could be an alternative topic, or perhaps you can put it on your resume.
