some ps ideas - need input
« on: October 03, 2004, 12:13:41 AM »
I am trying to get started on my ps and am struggling with ideas. I have come up with a couple and want some input:
~moved from a big city to basically farm country and most of whom never leave
~went to Japan with a friend and stayed with a host family for a summer when I was 10
~went to France twice (once in 8th grade and again in 10), stayed with host families, traveled around, and observed school

but i don't really know how to tie that in to law school.

The first idea seems good. I suppose any will work if your statement is well written but I think travel statements aren't as helpful.

I would say something like I want to do comparative/international law, and focus the PS on your journey from your farm life, to big city, to japan, to France, to yada yada yada.  How my traveling has driven me to learn new languages, new cultures, yada yada yada.....

You get my drift.

I like zemogj's suggestion.  I'd use your first idea as the main theme of the essay though... it gives a more complete picture of who you are and your background (and it sounds like an interesting one!)
