Personal Statement / Could someone critique my PS?
« on: July 17, 2006, 12:12:28 PM »
I just finished a very rough copy of my PS.  Would someone care to critique it?  And give constructive criticism ("your PS sucks" will make me cry...at least give me a reason why it sucks!)?  Thanks so much ya'll!

Personal Statement / Is this a decent topic?
« on: July 07, 2006, 02:28:35 PM »
Okay, I am a lower middle class, white as snow, straight out of undergrad (graduate in '07), female in Arkansas.  I haven't done any volunteer work, no major trips, nothing really all that interesting.  I have a 3.5 GPA at my undergrad, which is recognized around here as being really hard and a top-notch school, and something like a 3.8 in my major.  I made a 158 on the LSAT.  The only really exceptional thing I have done (that I can tell people on an admissions committee!) is get a job at the law firm of a University of Arkansas (my number one choice) alum as a legal researcher.  I actually write briefs and motions, file them, talk to clients sometimes, basically do paralegal work and A LOT of research, using case law and all kinds of lawyer-y type resources.  This will be my second summer working here.

So my question is: Is my work experience, and how much I've learned, a good topic for a PS?  Before I worked here, I only saw what was portrayed in the media, but now I've learned that the day-to-day workings of a law office are completely different.

I've never written anything like this before, and I'm freaking out a little about it.  Sorry this is so long and rambling...any help, suggestions, or tequila shots would be appreciated!

Studying for the LSAT / I just want my @!#%! SCORE!
« on: June 27, 2006, 05:01:49 PM »
ARRGHHH!!!  I'm just so sick of waiting!  I'm starting to get grumpy, and I don't even really care what I got anymore...I just want to KNOW!  I'm having a rather stressful week; I can't get anything done at work because I check my email every 5 minutes; I just want to sleep or be completely drunk until I get my score. 

I deem this the official ranting about my LSAT frustrations and anger thread.  I need a rage outlet...

Studying for the LSAT / Paranoia and nightmares setting in...
« on: June 26, 2006, 04:32:43 PM »
So I had an LSAT nightmare last night.  Apparently, I woke up mumbling something about how the test seemed too easy and how I would never get into law school, and I'd end up working at the gap the rest of my life...my boyfriend said I was freaking out in my sleep about it. 

And now, the people at the lsac site are starting to freak me out.  The people right above "Check your LSAC file status"?  Yeah...every time I click on the lsac page (it's been like 500 times today) they get creepier.  Almost like they're hiding something...like they know what my score is and just want to torture me a little longer.

I think I'm going crazy.



Oh, and yes, I am just 3 little gold stars.  My prongs make me the ping-pong champion!
