I'm in the same boat. I make a conscious effort to not be introverted, but with the p.statement it feels like I have to get a root canal done in order to come up with something extroverted like. *sighs* What makes this even worse for me, is that I've been chipping away at it since June. I find the hardest part of writing the p.s is reflecting on your life. I am deeply worried because I havent faced any major hardships, and I will come across as a bit dull.

finding a topic can feel like a nightmare if you don't have something really obvious...
i've found that i start to get a little bitter at people around me, thinking how i could totally use their lives for a good essay
i'm constantly turning to people and saying things like:

'you're jewish and gay and economically disadvantaged and your father left when you were 12 and blamed you - you're so lucky' (my best friend)
or getting really jealous of this horrible accident my brother had a year or so ago because he could totally spin it into a personal statement....stuff like that
fortunatly they all indulge my jealousy....
you will hardly know who i am or what i mean....

Life is always so much easier when those closest to you fully understand how damn stressful everything concerning law school actually is! ;)

Who knows?  Maybe once in a while adcoms appreciate a PS that just says, you know what, nothing majorly bad or good happened to me in life.  I'm normal.  Let me in just to even things out.  Doesn't everybody need a balancing act?

if nothing works out for you, you can always buy a ready-made ps on the internet.  they will never know.

this is a last resort type of thing though, of course.

But you can't be anything you want to be.
And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why. He said "You look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do.  So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..

since i've been denied the ability to write a convincing 'papa was a rolling stone and mama was a crack ho' kind of essay, i've found that i want to try and concentrate on writing something relatively upbeat, as i'm sure they see quite enough down but not out sort of stuff anyway (although they seem to encourage that - so they musn't complain)
