Okay, so I've gone through five or six drafts of my personal statement, but none of them have worked for anyone but my mother, who just keeps saying she thinks I'm wonderful. I love you, Mom, but you're not on the admissions committee. Apparently I am the world's worst personal statement writer. I sent a copy to a friend of mine who got into Yale for grad school (completely unrelated--physics), and he wasn't a fan either. I figure he knows what works since he got into Yale:o)
Show me yours I'll show you mine
So, does anyone want to trade statements and give feedback? I am actually good at helping others with their statements (I helped my roommate revise hers into a form that her advisor liked); I just really stink at revising my own!
