Proofread _ As with all of the application, it's crucial that you edit your personal statement. This little piece of writing reflects on you; don't let it scream "sloppy"! Write your statement and then proofread it for typos and grammar. The next day, read it again. Ask a good friend or teacher to read it too. Make your statement as near perfect as possible and it will serve your app well. A good personal statement could be the deciding factor for an applicant that is not clearly in or out. Take the time to make your writing work to your advantage and let your voice be heard in your application!
The conclusion _ Afterwards, go over your draft and try to summarize your points. Do not suddenly introduce any new information in this section; read through the body of your paragraph again and base your concluding paragraph from it. You need to reiterate all the points you made in the body and briefly relate them to your theme to show how they are all connected. More importantly, the conclusion should reiterate your main theme and tie up to the introduction to neatly sum up your essay.
