Thanks for all the input, it really means a lot!
I thought about it and I'm thinkin that the first two paragraphs I'll talk about what I went through, and then the rest of the essay i'll talk about how I overcame the abuse and what I would eventually like to do. I might even just dedicate one paragraph about what I went through. But my main goal is to let the law schools know that what I did to over come the abuse and what I want to do for all the other women out there. What do you guys think about that? Should I change the format around, or is the way I listed it sound good?
Once again, thanks for all the advice, Its helping alot!
