Lousy samples and excerpts _ Some sites, which provide personal statement samples, also provide excerpts based on personal or biographic information submitted. These statements are often delivered after you have provided them with personal information such as achievements, experiences, academic background, and your motivations for taking up the course. However, if the samples provided to you do not reflect your achievements and goals as an incoming student, you might want to look somewhere else. A good sample, outline, or excerpt should be comprehensive, interesting, and highly useful.
A solid body _ The body of the essay is where you include all pertinent information you wish to share with the admissions committee. This comprises the bulk of the essay and should therefore be written well with the necessary transitions provided to ensure its cohesion with the introduction and conclusion. Within each paragraph of the personal statement, include details of the most impressive or relevant achievements you have accumulated.
