Black Law Student Discussion Board / Admissions Advice
« on: June 17, 2006, 02:55:13 PM »
Hello everyone. I'm hoping you all will give me some advice. I am an older student looking to apply for Fall 07. I would like to know what people wrote about in there personal statements and do they think it made a difference. I've been adivsed to talk about socioeconomic factors etc. problem is I'm 33 and though I did have socioeconomic factors growing up I have a very good paying job now, I did a stint in the military, work as a government contractor and have all kinds of life and work experience since that time. I'm afraid if I don't tell the typical growing up in the hood story then my statement won't cut the mustard. In additon seems kind of lame to write about something that affected me as a teen ager now that I am grown. Any advice by those who have been accepted could give would be greatly appreciated.
