Strange how the MB filters sh*t with "darn"

Where did you see that?  I have the filter turned off.

The deal here is that I sorta do all my things in gradual order.

Perhaps I should talk about my volunteering at the Indian Reservation and how it gave me the since of achievement and drive to succed and how I will use that achievement and drive to do well in law school...perhaps I should talk about how helping the children with MS was a relevation of personal worth to me.

Now we're getting somewhere.  I should charge for my services.  Anyway, the key here is to tell a story of one event.  That way, the adcomms aren't reading an "essay," they're reading a story.  Talk about one experience at the reservation that was especially motivational.  Or talk about one meeting you had w/ a kid w/ MS.  Just start putting words on the paper.  Then cut out the crap.  Then post it up here when you're down to 400.

What about the store law program?  That seems to be tailored specifically for law school.  It's also pretty reasonable ($65?).  Anyone have experience with this?

If you can explain that in a story of one incident, then yes.  i ran my own business in undergrad, and for my ps, i wrote about this one pain in the ass customer i had, and how i made it work.  think of all the things that an adcomm can infer from that about me. 

Take your greatest accomplishment, and tell the story about it.  It will do a number of things:  show your writing ability, show what you have done, keep the adcomm entertained.  maybe...  MAYBE in your last paragraph show how what you accomplished will make you a good law student.

I'll take it one step further.  Clever 'people' names.

examples of this behavior include "Ludacris," "Xzibit," etc.  Tell me that doesn't get caught by spell check.

OK, then why do you want to go into law?

Okay, ill bute. The reason why I want to go to Law school is to do my part to defend and promote the development and preservation of the community and to do my part, whatever the size to make sure that all of held accounted and that those who have something to contribute to the community are able to do so.

I've gotten 52 3 times.  Anyone notice the "sock monkeys" ad on the bottom of this thread?
