i was having a hard time too but i just jotted down ideas that i wanted to write about and then started typing. when i was done - about two days later - i edited out the awful stuff and thought about the common thread in what was left. then worked on it.
i think it depends on how far out of school you are. i know frybread mentioned that even after 20 years he was getting UG recs but i talked to people in the yale and columbia admissions office who both said employers were fine given my situation (15 years out of college)

i will read it. just send me a PM. also include any relevant background info that may not be included.

Is it ok to incorporate why law school in my personal statement. Books I've read say to stay away from that topic but given my history I thought it would be appropriate. Thanks.
