Check your email Ninja- thanks for taking a look!

I am still pretty new to the board, so I really don't know what is proper etiquette for asking this, but I was wondering if a couple of you guys would be interested in taking a look at my first draft of my personal statement and telling me what you think.  I'm not looking for gramatical advice because that can be hammered out later- I just want to know what you think about the general layout and concept (which ended up being I think pretty unique).  Anyone interested, just let me know.

Have one... beat Galaxy... beat nearly all of Nintendo's big games... I guess I should have said, what else is there to do when not perfecting Guitar Hero ;D

I am going to get started early on my personal statement, and, as much as I would love to come up with some big unique way of saying things, I plan on going with a pretty basic topic instead- potential.  I plan on talking about (maybe) how I will be a first generation college graduate, and how even though I come from an inpoverished and low-education-rate county, I have excelled in college and am one of the top 10 students in my major.  From there, I will probably talk about how I have a lot of potential to excel, and how I want to make the most out of the abilities I have been blessed with.

Does this sound like a pretty decent idea?  I realize it is pretty basic and ordinary, but I am not too shabby of a writer, and I feel like I could turn it into something pretty good.  Any advice is both welcome and appreciated.

Law School Admissions / Killing time- what else to do?

I took the LSAT a couple of days ago, so that is done.  Today I send a transcript request form for my university to send to the LSAC, so that is done.  I have already gotten 3 professors who have told me they would write letters of recommendation, and I mailed them the required forms today.  I am already registered through the LSDAS.

I guess what I am asking is if anyone can see anything I may have missed.  I find getting this stuff together a good way to pass time until the score comes in- if anyone sees anything else to do, please let me know.

Mine first- yesterday, after the procter hands everything out and asks if there are any questions, this guy with more than a little fear in his voice raises his hand and says "Do you not provide the scrap paper for us?".  I felt bad for him... anyone else have any funny stories from yesterday?

Dilettante, my fears are the same as yours.  I walked out feeling like a million bucks about how I had done- however, I am noticing that many other posters are feeling the same way.  Should be an interesting time till we get scores back...

Speaking of which- anybody have any idea how long it takes to get scores back?

Games was probably tied for my best with the first Reasoning section (which is odd because Games are my worst usually)... Reading I thought was really tough this time.

Speaking of reading, I had two RCs which means one was experimental- the first RC was section 1 and the second was section 3- can anyone help me figure out which one was experimental?

What does everyone think? What was your best and worst?  Discuss.
