4 _ Show an interest in law _ This doesn't always need to be work experience, however that is a great way to show interest. Even one week working at a local solicitors firm can do wonders for your application. You could simply enjoy reading about legal and political developments too, or maybe just really enjoyed your law AS level. Make it a legal personal statement rather than just a general personal statement.
Check for grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you're not confident about these aspects then ask someone you can trust or hire a professional to check the personal statement. _ Review your statement and ask these questions: _ Have I answered the questions required? _ Have I put forward the best examples of experiences and effects that are relevant to my field of study or who I am? _ Have I effectively answered the main question here _ Why should the Graduate School accept me over my fellow applicant? _ Does this statement reflect who I really am or do I sound like a "too good to be true" parrot? _ Would I fall asleep if I had to read this or would it grab my attention? _ Have I let my sense of humor get carried away? Do I sound too opinionated or extreme in my views? _ Have I addressed any weaknesses I have e.g. low GPA or LSAT?
