Composing an Effective PS _ Now that we have provided an introduction of a PS's characteristics as well as a rundown of its basic components, let us turn our attention to the most important step in the process_composing the PS itself. It would be unwise if you started writing without a clear direction or goal. Personal Statements can vary in word count and style. However, what they have in common is they comprise an attempt to explain your point of view. They should therefore be skillfully written in the sense that the information they present is clear and informative.

The introduction _ This may sound strange but saving the introduction for last is more advantageous than it may seem. Having written the body and the conclusion, you are now in the best position to tell the reader, as creatively as possible, what they are reading into. In the introduction, explain your thesis statement and how you are going to affirm it without being too specific. Do not use typical introductions such as"This essay is about..." or "The topic of this essay is..." or "I will now show that..." It is not only boring but also uncreative.
