10th PS draft - anyone ?
« on: October 13, 2006, 09:32:35 AM »
I've just finished the 10th revision (though some previous revisions were pretty minor) and I'm entirely convinced that my personal statement is cheesy and trite.

I'd love to get a second opinion from you guys, and since I thought it was a great idea to put comments regarding the personal statement in the thread soliciting feedback, I'd love to be the first to do that.

If you're interested, PM me or post in this thread and I'll send you a draft of my PS.  Then post your feedback here without quoting or revealing much of the personal info from my PS, if possible.

Caveat - my PS contains A LOT of personal info, and I've been burned last year asking someone for feedback, so if you are new and I'm not familiar with your profile, don't be offended if I don't send it to you.  It was extremely painful to get insults back instead of feedback and I don't want to go through that again.  Oh, one more thing - if you have strong anti-immigration views, this PS may not be for you.

Thanks guys!

I'll read it.  I'm a regular and I'm nice.  :)  No personal insults, just constructive criticism.

Sure I'll read it for you.  PM it over.  I would never attach someone's whole theme for thier PS, that's not my judgement call to make, but I do have a lot of technical writing background.
