Every aspiring law student must submit a personal statement to apply and be subsequently admitted into law school. In mine, I tried leveraging my games knowledge and history. Here's a snippet:
"For me games became something more than just a pastime or a simple amusement. I reveled in understanding the key to success within each game I played. Each had its own compelling system of rules and strategies to master."
Most of the schools I applied to apparently didn't think that understanding of rules for a virtual world could translate into understanding of rules (laws) for the real world: Denied. A few did: Admitted. I'm eager to prove my believers right.
