I wrote my personal statment about certainty and how nothing in my life is certain or something along those lines. My question is though, will law schools look at this harshly... Law is a profession that centers on rational discourse and logical debate. The LSAT exemplifies this point. I know that in todays world, many professors (especially philosophy profs.) talk about how we can never really know anything, how ideas are subjective and we must be tolerant of all other views, even suicide bombers intent on killing us... which is kinda of what my essay focuses on, the uncertainty in my life... but is this kind of thinking not suitable for law school? Law school is about who can provide the most powerful argument to logically defend one side of an issue...and maybe the whole "certainty is non-existent" and "I have apprehended and grasped the true nature of this world; that there is no true nature at all" spiel doesn't fit.
What does everyone think. The essay turned out stellar, but a friend commented on this theme of certainty and got me a lil worried. I would love to hear what everyone else thinks. Basically I am saying i was always certain about my future, all this adversity came, changd my life, etc... so i cant say anythings certain anymore... its pretty deep yet expresses a lot about myself and my character... will this make me look like a uncertain and weak applicant? all comments and advice are def. welcome. Thanks guys!!
