    Hi guys,

    I was hoping to get some clarity on this question:

    Why have you chosen to become a solicitor? What relevant skills do you possess? (200 words)

    Given this question is 200 words and wants me to cover why I want to become a solicitor AND what skills I possess, I have basically jumped straight into why I want to be a commercial solicitor specifically (it's a commercial firm that I am applying for.)

    Do you think this is acceptable? Or should I make more effort to explain why I want to be a solicitor generally?

    I'm trying to do it in 100 words to leave room for the skills.

    Thanks!

    No - you can focus on being a commercial solicitor.

    You can intertwine the motivations and skill set - you don’t have to answer one half with 100 words, and the other half with the remaining word count.
