PS Topic
« on: November 02, 2008, 06:35:49 PM »
Throughout my life, people have always stated how "smart" I was.  However, I have always told them that it's not about being smart; it's that I work hard evidenced by my 3.95 GPA and 151 LSAT score.  Would showing how I am a hardworker be a good PS Topic or does this work against me considering I am admitting that I am not a genius?

It might work against you considering it shows that you didn't work hard at the LSAT  :-\  Is there anything else you would like the admissions committee to know about you besides that you're a hard worker?

Thta may be true.  Well, I 've always seen myself to be a leader, caring, and ambitious.  I was also trying to link my involvment with rescuing and nursing animals back to health but don't really know if that would be appropriate.

I think that could lend itself to being a very interesting topic if done right.

And what would that show about myself other than I like animals?  Caring?

I would think you could find creative ways to use that topic to tell them what you want them to know about yourself.

An "I'm a hard wroker" PS sounds like an excuse for a mediocre LSAT score.
