I have a question about the content of the PS for Canadian schools.
For a lot of American schools, it seems that you are encouraged to avoid talking about "why I want to be a lawyer" in your PS - unless they specifically tell you to write on that topic. Most drafts I have written are thus quite personal and don't explicitly say why I want to pursue a legal profession. Canadian schools, however, seem to expect that you will make some mention of why you want to study law and what you will do with it. I am confused. Before I submit, I want to be sure...
U of T does say there is no prescribed content or format but I am not sure if I can get away without explicitely stating why I want to study law? I suppose I should have contacted them but until now I assumed that it would be the same as American schools (Yeah I am a D0UCHE).
I do have a draft or two that do talk directly about "why law," but I think it's pretty dry and boring. I have another draft that is more personal and interesting, but that doesn't explicitly state why I am applying for law schools and what I want to do with my law degree.
Suggestions will be greatly appreciated..
