Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / PS too much like a resume? Anyone want to look?« on: February 19, 2009, 09:48:17 AM »
When I sat down to write why I wanted to become a lawyer, I had about 20 pgs worth of reasons and things I've been doing to get there. I fianlly cut a lot out, but was left with a number of experiences and feelings that were hard to connect. I thought it would be creative to set my essay up like a diary entry with dates and what happened on those dates that made me want to pursue a legal education. I had it read by 2 people- neither who went to law school- who disagreed. One loved the format and the other said the admissions office would hate it. Anyone want to take a look and act as the tiebreaker before I re-write it?
