Black Law Students / So How Hard Is Law School? (1l's and beyond)
« on: July 03, 2006, 05:25:00 PM »
How many people feel they fared at the top of there class? Was it hard or managable? What would you do different?

I'm starting my personal statement this week and I'm a pretty good writer by most standards but I'm not sure what the adcomms need to know about me and how I should present it.Does my ps have to revolve around why I would be a good lawyer/law student?

Studying for the LSAT / what are my chances

Okay I got a 162
3.3 undergrad gpa (History)
3.5 grad gpa (Poli Sci)
urm status (AA from BK)
pretty good volunteer record
what are my top choices for scholarship money and ranking? NYC only.

To truly write a statement that would reflect who I am and why I want to be a lawyer, would mean describing the many advesaries I have faced in my life. My issues are complex and may seem a bit much to discuss. However I did spend some time in a Haiti earlier this year and the experience had a huge impact. So should I skip the childhood trauma (i.e, sexual abuse, sexual orientation, poverty) and go for a more positive approach or should I combine the two?

More importantly how personal is too personal? Where should I draw the line? What would make you feel uncomfortable reading?
