I'm really trying to work on building a strong personal statement at this point because I think it'll be the making or breaking point of my app because of my mediocre LSAT score (my goal is Georgetown). Initially I wanted to write something about how my interest in the law has evolved over the course of the last few years, but I was reading in How to get in to the top law schools that this is a bad approach for undergrads trying to go straight to law school. So then my idea became that I should write something about how I want to be a politician and I think a legal background will benefit this. I also would like to point out that I am very interested in being a lawyer too (in other words my sole purpose in going to law school is not to be a politician, in fact I would be happy to just be a lawyer)--so I'm not sure if this approach will be bad because it'll make me look like I'm not really interested in a JD. But if you think it will work what do you think the main reason is that most politicians are lawyers.Some reasons I have so far:-lawyers are taught to argue a side, politicians are similar-lawyers are taught about the law, politicians pass/write the lawI think I can write some on those two topics, but I just want to see what other people out there think about this?
