So basically, while in my second year of college, the company my dad worked for went backrupt. There was a big law suit and criminal investigation of the events that lead to the company failing and a lot of people have ended up going to prison because of it, including my father. During the time between the company going under and leaving for prison, my father became an alcoholic, my parents went bankrupt and then got divorced.
Needless to say, this has been the toughest challenge I and my family have had to face, and it's what I will be basing my PS on. My question is, should I leave my father's prison sentence out of it, and just talk about the bankruptcy/divorce/alcoholism? It did have an impact on my decision for law school, but I'm afraid it may reflect poorly on me if I mention it....thoughts?
