do law schools generally like these kinds of things? I mainly wrote about how me getting mugged turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me becuase it sparked a series of events that academically centered me and set me on the right road for law school

would anyone like to read it and critique it? It reads like a novel, not dry at all

Sure.  I think I'm a better editor than a writer, and I'd be more than happy to take a look at your essay.

PM me or e-mail me at ysukkim@gmail.com

I'd also be happy to trade readings, I really need an extra set of eyes on my ps. Let me know how you want to go about trading.

well I decided to scrap that entire PS, i got really bad feedback from family members and friends. Im working on a new one and just did the intro, if anyone wants to read my intro? Same idea of being mugged, but different way of presenting it.

It would make a cool personal statement if you like, befriended the mugger and embraced the thieving bastard as a lost soul and ended up marrying the person. Just throwing that out there.
