Personal Statement for Law School

As a young woman of oppressed colour, belonging to a religion subject to discrimination, coming from a lower-middle class family, I have always sought to channel my sheer excellence, brilliance and awesomeness through the appropriate media. This initially began with my amazing organizational and leadership abilities, which first piqued during early adolescence. My brilliance was expressed through my involvement in student politics and general good-will kind of crap. It worked extremely well in cultivating the already existing awesomeness I held within.

By the end of high school, I found myself unmatched and reveled in this feat. I was extremely involved in community work which revolved around teaching young girls how to be more like me; I taught them to love me and themselves. But first, me because I was their role model. This, essentially, is how I see my career. Law school would allow for me to cultivate my already awesome self to the n-th degree, given its rather egoistic environment. It is not law, in and of itself, which I am interested in practicing – but rather in the end result, the degree, which would take my awesomeness to the next level. I can’t wait to tell people “Yeah, I went to Law school. I know, I’m way more awesome than I was with my McGill undergrad degree in political science and middle east studies, jt. honours, which already made me really awesome but law school makes my awesomeness more legit so yeah.”

I am interested in working with young women and giving them something to strive for – such as my character and person. I believe that were more people like me, the world would be a much better place. I want to give young women hope – that they do not have to fall victim to the patriarchy so dominant in our world. Rather, they can fall victim to my awesomeness, knowing that it isn’t oppressive.

By not selecting me for your school, your school will miss out on an opportunity to flourish. My mere presence makes people swoon. Were I to be selected into your law program, money from alumni would rush into the hands of the administration which means more money for you. You would be rewarded for recognizing my brilliance – not that I need that recognition; I’m rather secure with myself.

Thank you for taking the time to read my personal statement. If given the opportunity to attend your school, I can assure you that I can cure cancer, AIDs, poverty, alzheimers, the gay, pop punk and elevate your school’s standing to number 1. And if the school is already number one, I’ll make it number 2 and 3 as well, knocking out the competition.

Thank you.
