I am looking forward to becoming a federal prosecutor for a host of reasons, foremost of which is my patriotism and my love 
for law and order. After a great deal of reflection, I am confident that 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, frankly, 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. Rather, I always seek ways to bridge divergent opinions, reconciling them 
through the creation of alternative ways of characterizing the scenario in question. I have a legal mindset and I have grown 
comfortable largely 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, generous to others.

For me, the bad guys are white collar criminals who get rich through fraud, living off the backs of hard working people, robbing 
them, stealing their life savings. I am concerned about corruption both in our society and within our government—on both state 
and federal levels, but especially the latter; and I am fond of pondering theoretical constructions of what exactly ‘corruption’ 
means, and studying the extent of its prevalence. As a second generation immigrant Palestinian American, we were taught as kids 
that school was not important because it was not really 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, 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 take my special circumstances into consideration. I have finally achieved 
a level of 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.
