When you allow a fresh set of eyes on your admission essay it is almost as if your personal statement is getting practice. After all, your statement will ultimately end up being read by one or more people while your application is being reviewed so it makes sense that a well read personal statement should do better in its final stages. Why have the reviewers catch the mistakes that someone else can catch beforehand? It is far better to catch a small mistake that can cost you admission, before it actually has the chance to cost you.
One caveat in using personal statement help, however, is to make sure that you don't copy these samples and pass them as your own work in your admissions essay. These guides are meant to be just that__guides. Copying someone else's written work and claiming them as your own is one form of plagiarism. Submitting a plagiarized work as a personal statement will surely put your application and your credibility at risk. By making use of sample statements wisely and effectively, there is no reason why you should not come up with a lively, informative, and well_written piece as your admissions essay.
