What else? PS Topic Help Needed
« on: October 08, 2006, 01:43:15 AM »
As of last summer, I have a dead brother.  Both he and my father perished in drunken car crashes.  The death of my brother is the single most significant event that contributed to my interest in law school.  I'm smart enough to avoid blanket cliche statements about it, but now I'm wondering if the topic itself is too cliche.  I mean, it helps that it happened twice, and I think that my brother would be pleased to aid in such a worthy cause.

Other than that, I grew up in a football-is-life small town, have danced/taught dance for 20 years, traveled a bit.  I wasn't in a sorority, have no disabilities, and was never molested.

I really want to write the dead brother essay.  What do you all think?

you know what... since this is so important to you..I think you should at least give it a go. if you end up not liking it, then it seems you have other great topics. but this idea seems to be great to me, since it's so real to you. might at well at least try it. good luck.
