Please interview me?

Well folks, I applied for the Gates Scholarship and will be hearing from them on March 16th as to whether I get an interview or not. I really want an interview!!! Seeing as I headline this here blog, I'm going to tell you why.

First of all, this is one of the most amazing opportunities offered by the University of Washington Law School. On the financial end of things, the scholarship provides for three years of tuition, books, transportation, lodging, and even a stipend for other expenses. It is a full ride scholarship in every sense of the word. However it provides so much more than money!

As a Gates Scholar you become a part of a strong community of professionals dedicated to public service. You have mentors in the law school and in the law community that help you reach your professional goals. They provide financial assistance and placement assistance for an internship during your 1L or 2L summer. The program is constantly putting on programs and seminars that let scholars and the broader community gain insight into Public Service Law and where it stands today. The Gates PSL Program surrounds you with the support that law students could only dream of!

Most importantly, the program would allow me to ultimately follow my dream of becoming a lawyer for underprivileged Indian tribes and individuals. It is the entire reason I am going to law school, and with the assistance of this program I am confident that I can make a huge positive impact on their futures. If I could just get an interview I know I could get that passion across. They require 5 years of public service after law school and I would be so happy to be able to do that and so much more!

Dear Universe,

Please let me get this interview. I will take it from there, unless you want to help of course.
