Timothy’s advice for law school applicants:

Your application and resume are the appropriate settings for you to present the admissions committees with your qualifications and achievements. When approaching your essays, go beyond those impressive facts. Take this as an opportunity to reflect back on your life, how you got to where you are and where you want to go. Explore past events and experiences, and think deeply about how they have changed your perspective and what they reflect about you. As you will soon discover, everyone at your law school has stellar resumes, so set yourself apart by showing something deeper to the admissions committee. Law schools are looking for well-rounded and interesting applicants who are passionate and can add value to their school.
