Is it okay if I write about how losing a lot of weight (25lbs) changed my life for my personal statement?
Hmmm... I think those essay services are for an act of desperation. Overcoming adversity definately is a good topic. That is what I wrote about, and I got accepted to schools I had no business being accepted to. =) I eventually picked one which gave me a very decent scholarship.I wrote about overcoming being extremely introverted. So, you see, you don't have to be a poor, downtrodden child of an immigrant coal factory worker to write about overcoming adversity. Just make sure that you don't OVERSTATE the horrors of your adversity if it was not life threatening.
