When you applied as an undergraduate, your personal statement probably didn't make much of a difference, because undergraduate admissions are heavily based on numbers (GPAs, test scores, etc). Graduate and professional school admissions are different! Your competitors will have grades and test scores similar to yours, because most people who have the motivation to pursue an advanced degree did well as undergraduate students. As the number of applicants rises and academic budgets are cut, every year there's more competition for fewer admissions openings. How does the committee determine that you have what it takes to succeed in advanced studies? You guessed it. Your personal statement will play a determining role in whether or not your application is successful. So you know you need to write the strongest, most persuasive personal statement you can. But here are two facts you may not know. First, most reviewers will spend only a couple minutes skimming your personal statement. Second, because their job is to weed out the majority of applications, reviewers are looking for reasons not to recommend you for admission.
Finally, review your statement and rephrase it again and again. If it exceeds the limit, summarize it and omit all unnecessary lines. Delete the repetitive sentences. Substitute high vocabulary with suitable synonym. Check for grammar and sentence formation. You can proof read the statement to correct any mistake or could make it re_check by your teacher. Do not plagiarize any thing. If you have taken any point from any where, refer it, because plagiarize software could detect and you might get rejection instantly on doing such crime. Do not add humor or use slang language. Try to use readable font size 12, Times New Roman and give line spacing of 1Ǒ after each line. Put your name and page number on each page. Submit your final draft and wait for the good response from the selection committee. Your hard working will surely help you to garner the best result.
