My numbers are 3.72 GPA and 176 LSAT, and I'm going to be applying for the top 5 schools in the States (Yale, Harvard, Stanford, NYU, Columbia), as well as some Canadian options (I'm Canadian).
So my question is: I have ahd a fairly unorthodox personal life for a pre-law student. A good portiong of my undergraduate career was spent playing in and obsessing about my various rock and roll bands. I play in two now. I have maybe gigged with 10 or more bands in my life, playing drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, banjo, mandolin and singing. We have never really had much success financially or anything, but one of my bands has toured across Canada, and we're about to go again. I'm also a dedicated and constantly learning recording engineer. I've considered being a professional musican/engineer, but I feel like I would be maybe be wasting my intellectual abilities, and most older dudes that I see who have gone that route seem to have had a rather unsatisfying and hard life. I'm content at this point to be an entertainment lawyer and be a hobby musician/engineer. Do you think that this content will make for an OK personal statement?
I was pretty plugged in academically, but I was never on the debate club or got any awards or anything.
