Is this a good PS topic? Structure.

Is this a good PS topic? Structure.

Hi, I'm trying to think of how I should structure my PS and what ideas I should use.  Can anyone tell me whether this is a good start?

For my Topic, I'm going to elaborate on how becoming a lawyer fits in to my goals and my desire to contribute to the society at large.  I want to elaborate  how Canada/U.S. is comprised of equality and diversity and that my goal is to represent equality regardless of gender, race, nationality, and income level. 

This will be my structure:

P1: Intro.  Quote on equality of all.  What Canada/U.S.(I'm applying to both) and law means to me, and why "insert law school" is the ideal choice and how I fit in to their system.

P2: Elaborate on my interest in law, and the type of law I want to persue and why I am specifically interested in "insert law school."  What distinguishes "insert law school" from others?

P3: How I fit in to the law school system and what attributes I hold that will distinguish me from others.

P4: Elaborate more on the P3.  Talk about the political campaign i volunteered for and how my emphasis on equal accessibility and equal rights during this campaign fits in to my goal of becoming a lawyer.

P5: Conclude.

Excuse me for the spelling mistakes/grammer.  I just wanted to quickly type out my ideas while it was still fresh on my head.  Thanks.

Anna Ivey is pretty clear in her book that you should never start off with a quote from someone else.  Just something to think about.  Apparently it's done pretty often.
