I am taking a vacation week next week to study for LSAT and draft my personal statement and send out requests for LORs. I am wondering how tailored your PS should be regarding the school you are applying. Do you do a lot of research per school or do people generally send the same one to all the schools?
2. Do you have to submit your personal statement through the LSAC site or do you mail it in with your paper application?
3. Should you attach a picture with your personal statement even if they don't ask for one?
4. I am a 21 year old traditional student with no "traumatic" events to focus on. Pretty much your average person and I'm having a problem coming up with a topic. I've interned at several law firms, but nothing that led to a drastic realization of me wanting to become a lawyer. I also don't know what kind of law I want to practice, but I am interested in several avenues. Not really sure a topic!! Everyone seems to of written about living abroad, overcoming diversity, etc.
5. Is it okay to try and be humorous? There was an earthquake on the day i was visiting a potential school and I thought I could say something funny about it...
6. You're supposed to send in your resume with your app too, right? So there isn't a need to mention all the things you did because they'll see it anyway?
