This is the statement where there is a chance to clarify the distinctions between applicants whose academic records are quite similar and makes you unique. It is a forum for candidates to express how factors outside their school environment have improved or hampered their ability to increase existing academic and intellectual prospects.
The PS should always end on a positive note, and the conclusion should summarize the body of the statement. It is important to reiterate the primary message of the personal statement and thank the audience for their consideration. This will leave the reader with positive images of the applicant as they put the personal statement down.
