Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: PS for Non-trads

Thanks, my plan was to address this and while I know Anna reigns Queen, sometimes it's nice to have her wisdom and your own instincts validated by your peers. KWIM? I only want to go through the apps process once.  ;)

Sure! PM it over. I've just started working on mine, so I've nothing to share right now.

The timeline in your paragraph is a bit confusing. It seems to begin in the present and then the reader realizes that it's not present time (which is fine), but then you take us back three years (reader thinks, "oh, ok, no we're going back three years") but then you introduce a new timeframe for the reader to abstract: wedding/engagement/college years - it gets a bit confusing/unclear. Also, can you improve the tone? I realize this is probably a painful/difficult subject, but the tone is just a little warmer than a 'matter of fact' style. Overall, I think it can be an interesting way to start. Keep in mind, tho.. do you want to be remembered as the girl that was abused by her exhusband, or the girl that was in an arranged marriage? Or are you going for something else? If it's something else, then get to it quick because abuse and arranged are all that stand out and I'm certain that you are more than either.  ;)

I'll read it! PM it over.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / PS for Non-trads

Hi, I'm curious about what some of you nontrads are doing for your PS. Are you addressing why law/why the change in your career? It seems that it would be odd not to tell adcomms why you are changing careers after 10+ years in a given field (as in my case, I was an HR Manager/Director for over 10 years). So, in reading the standard advice for PS's, do you think the advice for trads applies to non-trads (ie, don't talk about why you want to go to law school)?
