Hey guys and gals! I wasn't able to find a place with a good selection of varied personal statement examples, so I figured I could come on here and gather up a few as a service exchange.
Now, I don't know much about LS applications yet or what admission councils look for in personal statements; however, I am a pretty darn good editor and am willing to go through your statements with an eye for structure, grammar, spelling, etc. Not that I'm placing a guarantee on perfection, but if you're lacking in confidence over your personal statement then it is most certainly better than nothing. Also, you'll be giving me a helping hand by providing me with useful examples of what people are putting out there.
Please note, however, that if I receive large quantities of statements from this post then I will only be replying to them as I have time. That could mean one, two, or even none a day. And should I never get back to you? Well, in that case, consider it a lost cause
Furthermore, to ensure that I am not still receiving personal statements after graduation, please refrain from sending additional statements after August 20, 2006
.One final note
: Please indicate how anal retentive you want me to be when editing your personal statement. As you can see from my post, my personal style leans towards a casual, conversational pose, which is what I will default towards unless you indicate otherwise
