Hi everyone! I've been lurking on here for a while now, but finally decided to make an account because I have an oddly specific question and was wondering if anyone had any input.
I will be applying to law schools next cycle (November 2021). For most schools that I am considering, the personal statement is asking to describe myself as well as why I am interested in going to law school. I have a very strong personal reason for why I would like to go to law school and a clear path for where I want to go, but these reasons can also be applied to the "part B" or addendum, that kind of thing. My GPA is 3.8 but I think I might want to add some personal reasons for part B or special consideration.
I know there's a lot left to guess here, but since I don't know any of you I'd rather not share all of the details. If you can message me, I'd love to go over this with you!
Anyway, my question is, should I include my story of why I want to go to law school in my main personal statement, or should I have that in the second part? I don't want to have two personal statements that are about a sad tragic life. Lol.
So yeah.. CGPA is 3.8, I think I have good references, good extracurricular/work experience, absolutely zero clue how the LSAT is going to go, but I guess that's not really relevant to this question. I think I'm pretty okay with writing academically as well. I like to think my story is pretty strong for my personal statement.
Thanks in advance, and again feel free to message me or ask questions if necessary!
