i think i finally have an idea of what i am going to write my ps about, so i just wanted to get some input as to whether or not it sounds good. i think its a pretty unique topic, will make for an enjoyable read, and will still help convey some important messages to the adcoms.
i want to write about a 14 day trip i took to honduras as a volunteer with the shark reasearch institute. i was part of a volunteer research team sent to study the population dynamics of whale sharks and to deploy satellite tags on any sharks we might encounter. i was thinking this topic would give me a wide range of things to talk about; how the experience helped me grow as a person, how i learned about the environment etc., how i experienced a very different culture, and how it relates to my interest in going to law school studying environmental law.
one thing i will make sure it does not become is a preachy "i want to save the earth" crap-a-thon.
so, what do you guys think of this topic?
