Using arrest for PS

Using arrest for PS
« on: July 22, 2005, 12:26:59 PM »
I was arrested and the case was thrown out (not a serious charge).  I want to use the experience to show why I left my career and why I want to practice in a certain area.

Any advice?

I really want to use this for my personal statement.

Nah, I think you should talk about the time you stole money from an employer and got away with it.

I'd go with the hit-and-run fatality you were involved in.

Was that before, or after, the bank heist?

About five minutes after.

You all are terrible.

I'll be honest, I'd be nervous about putting it front and center, unless it is INCREDIBLY related to what I was planning to do, or unless I was a phenominal writer and could make it compelling.

But thats just me.  I think I would try to downplay the least savory aspects.

About five minutes after.

And thirty minutes before the grand theft auto.

That was a long day.

Let's not even get into how he spent all the money on hookers later that night.

Don't exaggerate...he didn't spend it "all"...how else would he have bought the crack and Mad Dog 20/20?
