Some applicants may ramble on about themselves in a manner that may appear self-indulgent and not very appealing to the committee. Remember, this is an application essay, not an autobiography. Conversely, some applicants tend to say too little, perhaps hesitating to promote themselves too explicitly or not knowing what about themselves would be interesting to people whom they don't know. In such cases, perhaps focusing more on what you want to do than on what you have already done (let your record speak for itself) may help in getting beyond self-inhibition.
Jan - will you help me write my personal statement ?
YES - If you cannot afford to pay for an editing service then please e-mail me your personal statement, I will give you FREE advice if you agree to allow me to post your finished statement on this website 12 months after you have submitted your statement to me.
That way other people will be able to access FREE samples in the future when applying to university. Please look over my website as it has some really useful information.
Please note: I have a backlog of 35 statements to look over by the 28th of Jan 2012.
Email your statement to admin@ and it will take approx 1-2 weeks to get back to you.
