Personal Statement

I need help to write my personal statement for law school. Looking really for an hollistic essay to help my application.



Type of writing: Admission Essay

Pages: 2



Okay, let me explain the basics of what I want.

I want my PS to look a little bit like a story. My major is Criminology, Law and Society. I am graduating this december with a 3.9 GPA. I am African, coming from Ivory Coast which is a french speaking country so my native language is french. I have learned a little bit english at school and that’s so I learned English here while at school. But I managed to be at the top of my classes. I have made dean’s list four times, 2 in each of my college school. My community college and my university.

I am a really a devoted student. I came straight from Africa to the United states and live here alone. I knew nobody when I came i was just motivated to further my study, despite the fact It was so complicated because I wasn’t able to speak the language. But it never stopped me.

Becoming a lawyer has always been my dream job since childhood. I used to speak so well in front of people and mastered french so well, I have participated and been selected twice to a contest for Public Speaking Competition

I have never had late assignments, never been bothered by the workload because I am only dedicated to my studies and success and nothing else. My mother died the year I came to the united states from breast cancer and I decided that I have to succeed here to make her proud. So, I have never led anything coming my way because I have the goal to succeed and nothing else. I am a fervent human rights defender who has always fought against injustice, so that’s why I want to be a Human Rights Lawyer.
