does this make for a potentially compelling PS topic, or perhaps just a huge turn off to the ad committee? :

VERY LONG story short, my family basically went from riches to rags because my dad was caught for white collar crimes that made him go bankrupt essentially and drained us of everything. needless to say, it has had a huge impact on every corner of my life.  is this something that is risky to discuss in a PS - while it's not violence or anything, i dont' want them to think it runs in the family nor that i'm just some formerly-rich-kid complaining about not having money... i just want them to know my experience with seeing the flipside of the law and how much it has affected me blah blah blah. 

is white collar crime too mundane?  too risky to write about? your thoughts please.

please PM me if you have any recommendations!

Pretty much any time spent will be procrastinating and thinking of a topic, so you can take as long or as short as you want. I planned pretty much everything I was going to write lying in bed one night, trying to fall asleep. I still hadn't put anything down on paper, though, in July. Then my recommender asked for a copy and I actually had a deadline. I wrote it up in a couple hours, spent an hour editing it, and had it ready that evening.

i think that's how i'm going to approach it. i'd rather spend two months studying for the lsats and a week on my PS than have my PS procrastination hinder my study time. deadlines are a pusher.

how much time should i allocate to doing this thing?  haven't even started brainstorming yet, but i'm trying to setup a deadline for when to get it done by... (taking december lsat)
