Regards.

Ps: Gcb I replied your PM, did you get it?

PERSONAL STATEMENT-- iam going to submitt this statement in 1hr for nyu law application pleaze reveiew it iam from non english background it will be a favour

My Family dreamt that I would be a doctor but my passion was for law. The prevalence of law in society directly relate to its socio economic development. My wish to study law stem from a need to overcome inequalities in society leading to law crime rate and higher economic growth of nation

.
I graduated from high school into one of most prestigious university in India, topping entrance test of law school where I was awarded a scholarship of full tuition waiver, During law study I choose international business law as major which remain my area of interest in law. I am confident that combination of business and legal studies would enable me to show best of my intellectual capacity and prosper in competitive commercial market.


I have stayed among top student in class during my five years of law study from an institution where mode of academic instruction was only in English. My active participation in debate, mock trials and community service had earned me numerous award to which a honor given by international court of justice judge hold an exceptional value as I was not only chosen among 120 best legal scholars in world but only Indian to receive that as of now.


My association with Mr. Wang during internship made me learn role of international arbitration in rsolving disputes where parties belonging to different legal system are involved with common interest. I was fortunate to submit my inputs to combat problem like smuggling across international border.currently I am in final year of competing my masters in international in past .relation although I have completed my diploma in business management.


The professional experience which I gained while working in an international law firm had developed my base toward application of law in regard to international business among two nation.The more I experience, the more I felt that my training in India falls short of what I needed to effectively deal with my international counterpart in course of my practice . My vision lies to gain insight into legal structure of U S A. which us biggest foreign investor of my country. Which is world fastest developing economy.


A exposure to study LLM at NYU in international business regulation, arbitration and litigation will help me to analyze procedural law on international business and likely influence policymakers in its direct indirect benefit to my country in term of business opportunity and competitiveness by issuing measures to bring more foreign investment, cautious approach toward intellectual properly right,peacefull settlement of international dispute through arbitration on faster node as I want to serve as foreign legal consultant for my country after doing LLM from USA.

I hope to apply my legal education to breadth a creative approach in way Asia engage business with USA.


I belong to underdeveloped community in India with low law financial income and would like to be considered for a full scholarship as my academic credential embedded with my work experience make me a deserving candidate for scholarship. I sincerely hope that I will accorded a privilege to pursue studies at your esteemed institution and work toward realizing my potential.

I don't mean to sound rough or anything like it but I really think that you shouldn't be posting your personal statement on the internet.

I understand that you are only asking us to proof read it but it could be misinterpreted and get you in trouble, since the personal statement should be written by you alone.

That being said Im not a native speaker so I wouldnt dare to help you on this. What I cant tell you is that after I submitted my own personal statement I realized that it contained a couple of minor mistakes (things like this instead of these) and I was mortified by it. But somehow I managed to get into Columbia, so I guess that these kind of things are not as important as we might think.

Good Luck!

U need help with the language and grammar. Kindly ask someone to proof read, as spellings are a big put off.
Have some regard for the country u come from, underdevloped community from india sounds weird.

Every one wants a scholarship, but there are multiple ways of requesting for it, NICELY

Gcb I think u have an offer from Cornell so all is not lost. I wouldn't want to be deferred to the regular cycle. Too much agony in waiting till they decide on a regular admission.

Yeah I know but still its Columbia:) I guess I mentioned too much about my competition law background too much in my application for Columbia:)) Anyways, when I was making my applications I wasnt even sure if I would be accepted to one good school. But still they say they will decide about me by mid april which I wont have time until then to accept other and it will be hard to decide.

But good luck to others still waiting. Hope you'll hear wonderful news.

Hey GCB!
I am sure you will make it in the regular cycle. The fact that you did not get in early review (despite getting offers from other good colleges) only shows how competitive the pool must have been. Good luck to you.

Is there any chance of more decisions coming out today? Or is it a wrap for the day, what do you guys think?

Cornell is a great School, so its Georgetown, and you have not even been rejected by Columbia! You have very good alternatives, that lots of people would be more than happy to have.

You might have to wait longer for an answer from Columbia (and that sucks, I agree), but is not as you are empty handed while you wait.
We still have more decisions coming soon (Duke, Upenn, NYU) so dont dismay

Good luck to everyone!
