I need help! I've actually alredy written a "personal statement" of sorts that I'm really only going to be able to use as the optional essay for many schools because it explains a hardship overcome, while many of the schools I'm applying to want to know why I want to be a lawyer. My problem isn't necessarily the stating WHY I want to be a lawyer, but it's the introductory paragraph of the statement. I refuse to use anything along the lines of "I've want to be a lawyer since I was..", obviously, but I can't really come up with anything that will likely get the attention of the reader without sounding cliche and boring. I really need help with the intro .. please!!!
