Will do.  Thanks so much for responding! :)

I like your personal statement overall.  I can definitely ascertain exactly why you want to be a lawyer.  It does seem to be a bit long though.  If there is a way that you can shorten it, you might want to consider this option.  I had a few content questions for you.  Towards the end of your essay, you discuss your law firm internship with rather short detail.  What was your title?  Was this a law clerk/paralegal internship?  Is there something that you learned in this internship that you can tie into your essay in terms of the competencies that will be expected of first year law students?  Lastly, in my mind, in order to seal the deal a little harder, is there any other correlation you can make in your essay about why you specically chose DePaul as opposed to another law school, and what specific components of this program interest you as you prepare for a career in international and human rights law.  Examples that come to mind might be study abroad opportunities, clinical programs, etc. I think law schools like to know what exactly is attracting the students who apply to their school.  Just my thoughts.

Hello all,

I could really use some helpful advice and friendly constructive feedback please.  I have written two personal statements.  There is one that I prefer which represents my latest efforts, but I think it could be better.  If I had to grade it, I think I would give it a B. I will gladly critique another personal statement if you provide your private email and your personal statement as an attachment.  Thanks for your time.

Note:   Since I originally posted this, I have noticed quite a few views, but no replies :'(so I have considerably modified this topic and removed my personal statement from the public.  If you are interested in assisting me, that would be greatly appreciated!  Please send me a PM with your statement, and I'll be happy to exchange mine for yours ok? :)  Many thanks!  8)
