I am a non-trad applicant applying to part time programs.  Would anyone care to read and critique?  It is of course the most blah, blah, blah, etc. PS you'll ever read.

PM me and I'll send it over.  I'll read your's as well if you would like.

So he can kick my ass in a bar?  I'll probably name him Bill or George or anything but Sue.
Gouging in the mud,the blood, and the beer.... Good times!

I actually did this.  However, the quote was of myself so I didn't violate any conventional wisdom.  In fact, my entire personal statement is just a list of the profound things that I've said over the years.  Instead of telling a story or crafting an argument, I thought I could impress adcomms with two dozen non sequiturs.

Oh, shut up you :D

If either of you ever has a child, and it's a boy... will you name him Sue?   ;)

It's always been ranked fairly low.

Southwestern is known for having a really good trial advocacy program.  They have a lot of people working for the District Attorney's office, so if that's something you're interested in, Southwestern may be a good option in the LA area. 

Thanks for the info.  I am very interested in the public sector so hopefully they like me.  They REALLY LIKE ME!!!!  (God Bless Sally Fields)

I am a bit confused and perhaps some of you can shed some light for me.  Most people I talk to here in Los Angeles regard Southwestern as a very good option for Law. Most public sector jobs go to Loyola and Southwestern grads.  (What I have been told) When I tell them it's a tier 4, they are very surprised.  Have they recently fallen in rankings or have they always been a tier 4?  Any information on the school would be appreciated. Please don't just bash for bashings sake. Try to have a somewhat informed opinion.  Thank you.

Thanks for the quick replys.  I was on the web looking at some critiques and both of the "good ones" had opening quotes.  Ben Franklin was one.... I'm not kidding!!!

Strive to be better than those!  Seriously, if they both have them, wouldn't you think they were overused?

Yes, it was silly of me to even ask.  But look at the bright side, it just killed 30 seconds of your life posting to it.

Well, I found an quote that I found somewhat applicable and amusing.  My Question is, are they cliche'.  Don't want to botch the damn thing in the opening sentence. Any comments... or torturous written personal jabs at me in general?  I'll even settle for an amusing adecdote.

Thank you.

I recommend going on the following web site:  http://lawschoolnumbers.com

You can look at all ABA schools and get data on their acceptance rates.  I found the graph tab to be very helpful.  It shows a GPA and LSAT score grid  --- Acctepted, Waitlisted, Denied.  With your current numbers, it looks to me like your right on the edge of acceptance there.

I'll go out on a limb and say he probably scored the 722 on his SAT's.
