Who's Bored Enough to Read My PS?
« on: June 17, 2004, 12:54:15 PM »
I just finished a rough draft of my PS.  My experience is pretty unique and my goals are very specific, and I would love to get input from anyone who likes to read and comment on these types of things.

I would prefer to email it, just let me know!  Thanks!

Thanks, green, it is sent.  It is a little rough but readable.

I am not worried about grammar, but about theme, direction, and style.  Is writing about OIF a smart move or not?  Should I focus on something else?

Thanks again for your help.

You can see my other posts on this topic, but I love to read/edit personal statements.  I also have a proofreading department at my office I can use to get the grammar corrected if you need it.  You can email it to Kristi_Ann81@yahoo.com, but give me a little while today as I'm working on someone else's right now.

 If your still looking for editing help, i dont mind...i've worked as an content editor in the past so while my grammer isnt perfect, i'm great with voice, issues with the flow of the story (or PS), and other such things  :)

Sent it to mivida2k@aol.com.  My major was English.
The president's approval rating has dropped to 33 percent, matching his low in May. His handling of nearly every issue, from the Iraq war to foreign policy, contributed to the president's decline around the nation, even in the Republican-friendly South.

You're golden if your PS is this popular with admissions officers as well.   ;)

I was an English major as well.  I would love to read it, as I am in the process of trying to develop my own.  You can send it to shanrocks73@hotmail.com if you are still looking for readers and opinions.
