I treated mine like just another soft. I know it didn't make a bit of difference in acceptances, and I have no idea if it even made a difference when it came to scholarship offers from places that accepted me (I'm betting it didn't even register). But for me, it was a great experience, helped me decide what I want to do with my law degree, and gave me reinforced passion about the law profession--all of which I talked about in my PS. If you're on the fence about whether you want to go to law school at all, a Masters in a related field may be a good option (depends entirely on your situation), giving you the option of getting a good non-law job at the end, if you decide not to pursue law after all. But if the goal is just to get into a good law school, don't do it.
