Focus on things that make you unique but showcase the skills that you think a law school would look for. Instead of mentioning critical thinking skills by itself, identify a project or a previous work experience where you were able to use your critical thinking skills to solve a problem. Focus on putting these skills into the Experience or Education sections of a resume, not a separate skills section,
Don't be afraid to describe the event and how you were able to showcase the skill. If you know the law school is known for a particular area (for example, corporate law), showcase your interest in corporate law, learning corporate law, or experience in a corporate setting.
Also, highlight activities and events you took part in while at school. Don't be afraid to mention a one-time event if it left an impression - show the law school admissions team that you have experience or desire to experience different things.
Ajay recommends the following next steps:
- Look at the law school's website to see what it prides itself on doing (environmental law, corporate, community law) and see if it's a good fit.
