Personal Statement / Looking for Inspiration
« on: January 12, 2005, 11:53:23 AM »
Would someone who's written what they feel is an excellent PS mind sending it to me.  I need some inspiration.



Update: alibami_z has the BEST advice for this request, which I've seen posted around LSD many times.  Jump down and read that response.  Ignore all the cräp (especially from Julie Fern) in between here and there.

Law School Applications / Re: Disclosure of Criminal Record
« on: January 05, 2005, 06:50:08 PM »
way too much information.  Should be three short bullets.

Yes, but if I don't include all of the details that I know about, couldn't they possibly say later that I didn't disclose details and therefore am disqualified from the bar because I do not meet the ethical character and fitness requirements?  That is, I knew more details about the reported incidents and witheld that information? 

I guess it depends on the specific wording of the particular app.  Let's say for argument sake that the application asks "Have you ever been charged with or convicted of a crime or a juvenile offense, or are criminal charges pending?"  Obviously if the question doesn't specifically ask if I was charged, I wouldn't disclose any of the details about the dismissed Felony charge.

Law School Applications / Disclosure of Record
« on: January 05, 2005, 06:22:23 PM »
Hello,  Could somebody please read my disclosure below and comment on it.  Will this disclosure have an adverse effect on my chances of admittance?  If so, how bad will it be?  I'm thinking about making my PS focus on how much I've matured over the past six years and learned from my mistakes.  Is that too obvious?  Any serious advice would be greatly appreciated.  In case you're interested I have a 2.98GPA and a 160LSAT.
