So, I don't want to whine about my parents divorce, childhood in poverty, because things weren't that bad.
I like the Montauk option of discussing your current job. I work in a call center at a legal insurance company. I wouldn't plan on rehashing my resume. I'd like to note the skills needed to perform the job well (communication, analytical, etc) and importance of attorneys.
Many of the schools I am applying to specifically ask for influences for law school.
Go? No go?
