Examples of Personal Statements: Reminders for the Hunt

The best start students get counts on phased processes of paper and actual work. Work starts when students shape their secondary education’s activities into a qualifying credential. In the process, they write and pass their paper-works.

Marks the culmination of this ‘secondary shaping,’ is another paper-task – for students to write personal statement. The statement must read all actual works whisked during secondary education – both academic and non-academic. The task looks simple enough; but as you read the conventions marring the statement writing, the sense of great overwhelm made itself known.

Hence, fighting this engulfing feeling should be top one of your agenda, as no task could possibly be covered with that feeling at tow. Have your-self filled instead with dizzying busyness. For one, hunt good examples of personal statements down the Internet, or even your colleague’s piece may do.

In looking for such statement models, there are a number of things to best be remembered:

  1. Before giving those examples of personal statements a good, poring look, check on its provided details – authorship, date submitted, institutes applied, and successful offers. Verifying this information ensures that these examples are genuine statements, as only real-made and submitted statement pieces qualify the ‘good example’ status.
  1. Set some search parameters. These parameters should be something of which students take into major consideration in their own actual writing. Some parameter examples may include word-count, prospective course or field, institutes applied or even writing style/tone.

Using such parameters will shorten the hunting time for good examples of personal statements. How? Well, if you see this statement example and you consider its relevance to your own planned writing, you simply take a glance at those set of parameters. The compatibility (or lack thereof) of the example with your set parameters will help you ‘make up’ your mind – a vantage point, since the task of ‘selecting’ is invariably time-consuming (especially for the uncertain student).

  1. As soon as the hunting leaves you with a great number of sample choices, narrow them down. Some may do this spontaneously, with no need for more parameters and instead, firmly rely in instincts or preference. Others somehow would find this layered evaluation a nuisance. To save them from further aggravation, they may try the judgement of others – a friend, colleague or tutor may do.
