9. Plagiarize your statement, or submit content you paid someone to write _ Most grad and professional school applicants have not read hundreds of personal statements and are unaware of how unique each person's writing style is. It really doesn't take much for admissions committees to note that the language and style of a candidate's personal statement is different from the writing found in other parts of the applications. There are also a few dozen so_called sample personal statements on the internet that are frequently copied and submitted as the applicant's own essay. Committees are well aware of this! You can also hire someone to write a personal statement for you. It may sound great to you, but you should realize that such essays are based on a template that they just customize for you, using the same paragraph organization and phrases. It's a smart move to get an expert to help you revise and polish your words into a persuasive statement. It's risky to plagiarize a statement from the internet, or hire someone to write the whole statement for you.
To help you begin the writing phase, it is advantageous to split the writing task into three parts: the body, the conclusion, and the introduction. You can do so chronologically or follow your own sequence depending on your personal preference and style.
