So my life for the month of November was all LSAT, then I had finals and whatnot, and I'm just now going to get started with my PS. I haven't really had a serious brainstorming session yet, but I've thought of two ideas so far and wanted some feedback (ie both horrible, one has potential, both have potential, why, etc.).
Idea #1: Talk about what it's like to work at Best Buy selling computers. I'm a Computer Engineering major (read: nerdling), so I figure I could play up the sales part of it, which would address my people skills, etc. (a different side of me from my major). I could also relate selling a computer to making arguments as an attorney, etc...but I want to do patent law, so that doesn't necessarily apply....lastly, I could throw some humor in w/ funny stories.
Idea #2: Talk about my struggle with my parents when I joined the LDS (Mormon) Church a few years ago. They were very much against it, which led to lots of drama that should be interesting to read about. I ended up joining, despite the threats, and everything is hunky-dory now...so this would show character/stick-to-itiveness and have a happy ending.
I have a horrible GPA (LSAC = 2.88) but will hopefully have 172-178 LSAT (waiting on Dec '05), so I REALLY need a rock solid PS, as they'll be relying on it heavily. Be blunt!
