So I am in a rare position where I went through the whole citizenship process when I turned 18 since my parents had no interest in getting it when I was younger and I was born abroad (although raised in the UK). I feel like the whole citizenship process might be something interesting and unique to talk about in my law personal statement and it would make me stand out?

depends but i’m leaning towards it might be difficult to link in. applying for citizenship is different from an understanding of immigration law or understanding the legal system (i know, i used to work in immigration. my clients wouldn’t know jack about it, not that i’m blaming them).

do you want to work in immigration law now and is that why you’ve chosen the degree? why a law degree and not a non-law degree?

only if it's relevant to why you want to study law
