Hi,I'm applying for 2010 in the NJ region(Rutgers my #1). I've attended culinary school, awesome internships and such in terms of my career path (food policy-ie. organic farms, M&M Mars, Nat'l School lunch program), and I'm currently an AmeriCorps volunteer for a nonprofit in Paterson, NJ (a 1 yr assignment focusing on education, youth, and community development). I've had incredible experiences and I highlight them well in my prsnl st.Stats:I went to 2 schools...1st was 3.57 gpa, 2nd was 3.7 (while working almost full time throughout)LSAT: 150 (Sept) taking it again in DecMY QUESTION: Is it worth it to submit an additional essay about being a gay guy??...It's not my deciding factor for pursuing law, but I could never say it has no influence and I could certainly explain it with relevancy. I know some schools encourage such pieces ( I guess the have the man power to read a lot or really need diversity), but is it worth it for all schools? Thanks for your help because, as usual, I'm confused about where my sexual orientation comes into play.
Yes. Definitely write a statement. There is a value to having a diversity of perspectives and experiences, especially in the legal classroom, and schools worth going to recognize this.

Maybe if I tell the schools about all of my freaky sex fantasies, I'll have better admissions chances too!
