i'll read it - maybe i'll have a different perspective b/c i am nontraditional applicant.

is it harder for older students (37+) to get clerkships?

what time, generally, do classes start 1L and what time is your class day over? I am going to commute and want to figure out what my day is going to be like. Do they start as early as 8am or more like 9am? Thanks!
At best, a "crazy" personal statement makes an applicant seem kooky and eccentric. At worst, it makes him/her seem like an obnoxious brat looking for attention. Law is a very conservative profession - things that seem unique or funny (like a PS in iambic pentameter) are more often than not perceived as misguided or foolish.
that was really well said. i knew you were smart before i even look at your lsn page. i am sure you will get into the top schools, esp. if your PS is as well written as the statement above. good luck to you.
