Now that people have sent in some/all of their apps and are either finished with, or nearly finished with, their PSs, I was just wondering....

I mean, I know ideally, we'd all work on it till it was 100 percent perfect but there are time constraints and the like that prohibit us from doing so.  And then there are others who have excellent scores that are applying to mediocre schools and opt not to bother spending a ton of time on the PS.  Whatever your situation, how do you feel about your PS now?

I said 'okay' because I think mine is well written and rather strong but doesn't really bring anything interesting to the table. I just wrote about my personality and how I approach difficult situations with confidence, etc. Its pretty basic and "safe". I didn't want to go out on a limb too much and jeopardize my chances by trying to fake "passion" for the law or trying to make a claim about how I am diverse. I tried to portray myself as someone who adcomms will have no reason to worry about accepting. The problem is that I never provide any compelling reason to be accepted. I'll see who it turns out.

Plus my reason to go to law school changes daily, and writing "so I can wear sweatpants more and postpone the real world" doesn't really cut it.

errrr, maybe i should re-think mine  :-\
