mind if i hit you guys up for some advice?
i'm on the young end of non-traditional (24). i got my BA in 02 and my MA in 03, both from prestigious big-name schools. right after that i started a PhD, got a 4.0 in my first quarter, and promptly dropped out and took a job at a law firm and started studying for lsats instead of continuing down the (excruciatingly long) PhD path. while ranked #1 in the country for my particular field, this third school is not a name school and probably not a place adcoms would really be impressed by.
i know i'm required to submit all transcripts from all schools, but i dont know whether to downplay my dropout-status and make it seem like my MA was just a step on the path to lawschool, or on the contrary really get into an explanation of why i chose to leave my program. likewise, am having trouble deciding whom to ask for recs out of profs at all 3 schools! undergrad seems a little far away, plus im afraid the response will be "wasn't i just writing you a rec for an entirely different grad program not long ago?"
likewise, i started writing a very pretty personal statement and a friend pointed out i might look to a law school like i still belong in academia rather than law. any thoughts would be awesome, i know im not the first to go this way
