Be sure to draft your personal statement using an active, dynamic, and assertive tone.  The past-tense, relatively speaking, generally connotes a fixed and retrospective voice, which can undermine the strength of your narrative. 

Remember, above all, to write with the admission officer's perspective in mind.  He/She will read hundreds, if not thousands of personal statements, and as a former admission committee officer, an active tenor is more readable.
