I am going to get started early on my personal statement, and, as much as I would love to come up with some big unique way of saying things, I plan on going with a pretty basic topic instead- potential. I plan on talking about (maybe) how I will be a first generation college graduate, and how even though I come from an inpoverished and low-education-rate county, I have excelled in college and am one of the top 10 students in my major. From there, I will probably talk about how I have a lot of potential to excel, and how I want to make the most out of the abilities I have been blessed with.
Does this sound like a pretty decent idea? I realize it is pretty basic and ordinary, but I am not too shabby of a writer, and I feel like I could turn it into something pretty good. Any advice is both welcome and appreciated.
