One of the worst things you can say in your application to law school is, "I like to argue."
Lawyers don't like to argue; they like to think about and define legal issues. In the process of doing that, they often come up with diverse interpretations, suggestions, and propose solutions. The presentation of these interpretations in a courtroom or law review article, presenting your side with appropriate citations two cases, law review articles, history and sociology texts and journals, isn't "arguing:" it's presenting a side. You don't do it by raising your voice and waving your arms, and you don't do it by talking about the person you knew who one time had… You do it by presenting a well reasoned point of view.
