Personal Statement / Looking for votes on two PS
« on: November 21, 2004, 08:55:53 PM »
Hey. I posted on here a few weeks ago with a PS I had finished. A few people took a look and offered me some good feedback. A few days later I grew frustrated with the PS and started over. Some of the themes stayed; some changed. But now I have two different statements and it is hard to have good perspective on them.

Would anybody be willing to take a look at the two and tell me which they prefer and why, and maybe suggest some improvements?

A note of warning though, I tried really hard to avoid a lot of things in writing my essay. I tried not to emphasize a particular form or structure other than having them read like a conversation, exploring myself and offering anecdotes from my life.

General Off-Topic Board / The unofficial LSD playlist
« on: November 08, 2004, 06:42:05 PM »
For what it's worth, I'd like to submit this as the unofficial LSD playlist:

1. I Fought the Law (The Clash)
2. Break the Law (Judas Priest)
3. Legal (Snow)
4. Legal Dub (Sublime)
5. Lawyers, Guns, and Money (Warren Zevons)
6. Above the Law (Pastor Troy)
7. #@!* the Law (Eminem)
8. Lawyers in Love (Jackson Browne)
9. Heavy Metal is the Law (Helloween)

That's the best I can do. Can anybody offer anything better?

Personal Statement / Yale 250 Word Essay
« on: November 08, 2004, 04:23:36 PM »
Is anybody out there working on the 250 word essay for Yale? I know there are ot of old threads out there where people talked about this. But I'd like to get together a few people who might be working on this right now. It would be good if we could start talking about it, and throwing things back and forth with each other.

Law School Applications / Need Opinions about My Arrests
« on: November 07, 2004, 01:46:27 PM »

I need some people who can give me some real honest impressions and thoughts about my explanantion of convictions. I wrote it two ways, and I can email it to you.

One approach is to just show the bare minimum (so I don't look like a total jackass). The other is to be fully candid and try to put it into context.

I showed these to my firends. One said the second approach was really bad. The other liked it. I would love to get some more opinions.
