Personal Statement Advice
« on: January 13, 2012, 02:20:44 PM »
I am trying to write a personal statement for law school, but don't know where to start. How can you decide on a strong topic to write about?

well, i can tell you about how i came up with my topic. I've always had an interest in human rights advocacy, so I talked about what sparked my interest in human rights and social justice and then went on to write about how I went about pursuing my interest: through research proposals and internships. You need to figure out why you want to go to law school, and then what experiences you've had that would make you a great candidate for law school. Hope this helped

Well I have always had an interest in leadership, juveniles and entertainment and sports.  So now I do my internship at a firm and volunteer for Juvenile court. Yes your post really did help.
