No offense taken. I'm thick skinned and appreciate the advice. Its funny you mention about the food content disclosure and boxing because those see two subjects I feel strongly about. I think the lax FDA regulations on supplements and fitness equipment need to change. The diet industry is a multibilllion dollar a year industry profitting from many unsubstantiated claims. As far as boxing, the fighters usually get the short end of the stick in many negotiations and contracts (think Mike Tyson and Don King) with their promoters and managers so I'd be interested in advocating as s sports attorney negotiating contracts on the boxer's behalf. How would you suggest I incorporate either of these themes? Cut out what I can about the sob story while still getting the message across. Thanks again for the onstructive criticism. Mike
You don't have to write about law in personal statements. Secondly, I'm a recreational bodybuilder and rely on supplements to enhance my training. How is this relevant? I don't like the FDA's power to regulate safe supplements that are misused by uninformed consumers searching for a miracle pill that will make them thin or give them tight abs or huge muscles. What you can focus on is how you might educate and change the advertising of said supplements with regulation. What creative manner can you think of to regulate how such products are used, advertised, sold, or manufactured? Aside from the obvious FDA should do this and I want to the FDA to change supplement categorizing, think about you could do without the aide of the FDA.
I'm also an avid follower of mixed-martial arts and let me tell you, those fighters are putting their lives on the line to give the public a great fight and they are doing it, on most cases if not all, with no health insurance. Also, there is no fighters' union like in baseball. Wouldn't a union benefit fighters? I understand you are into boxing, and that's great. Boxers, although they do not have health insurance nor a union, get paid way more per fight (I believe) than mixed martial artists (fighters). How can you as a boxer be alright with there not being a union nor health insurance in your sport?
There is more to law than the law. Think about how you can change something using the law and without possibly going to court and getting all parties involved agreeing harmoniously.
Excuse my tangent, just trying to give you some perspective. I like what your PS is about so far, but I'm sure that every boxer can benefit from a lawyer that wishes boxers had health insurance and a union.
Remember, the worst vice is advice. So, take all advice on here with a grain of salt, but don't rule any advice you get as useless or terrible.
If you want to talk more about regulation and sports or supplements, post on here and I can probably help you out. I used to be a certified personal trainer and have been a recreational bodybuilder for a few years. Yes, I know the bodybuilding world is also plagued with legal contradictions as well. Find them in boxing and you can be well on your way to writing a good personal statement.
