JD, Explaining Weak Exam Scores

I am looking forward to becoming a federal prosecutor for many reasons, including my patriotism and my love for law and order. After much reflection, I am confident I have made the correct career decision. XXXX's Law School is one of my two first choices. I will attend your program if accepted.

I was born in America, but I am Palestinian to the core, and I am hoping to be accepted by a program that likes the idea of having a representative Palestinian (or two) in the new class. While I do not put much energy into international politics or the Middle East, I am sensitive to questions of social justice and enjoy lively discussions with intellectual exploration and stimulation. Generally speaking, I avoid adopting a position. Instead, I always seek ways to bridge divergent opinions, reconciling them by creating alternative methods of characterizing the scenario in question. I have a legal mindset, and I have grown comfortable looking at life from a legal perspective. New York is home for me since I am from Brooklyn, and I like to think of New York as the legal capital of the world, where theory is indeed cast into the caldron of practitioners. Law School at XXXX is the perfect platform for my professional aspirations. I am highly motivated, disciplined, diligent, and analytical to the extreme, yet I take the most pride in being compassionate and generous to others.

The bad guys are white-collar criminals who get rich through fraud, living off the backs of hard-working people, robbing them, and stealing their life savings. I am concerned about corruption in our society and our government on both state and federal levels, especially the latter. I am fond of pondering theoretical constructions of what exactly corruption means and studying its prevalence. As second-generation immigrant Palestinian Americans, we were taught as kids that school was unimportant because it was not relevant to our sub-cultural norms of economic independence. I was put to work at my father's supermarket at the age of 12 to help earn money for my family. My father was murdered in this store, and I watched him die. Perhaps this has also motivated me towards law: conflict and its resolution through peaceful means. I am proud to be Palestinian, to come from an immigrant family, and to have the satisfaction of struggling mightily for everything that I will ever achieve.

My exam scores are not the greatest, and I ask that you consider my exceptional circumstances. I have finally achieved economic security for my family so that I can give my all to Law School 24/7. My very spirituality is trained towards become a lawyer and defending people from corruption.
