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.
Let us move on to the contents of the personal statements. As such, there is no one proper way to inscribe personal statements. However, generally, the academic officers who read your essay will be interested to look into two important aspects emerging from the statement. One being how you are presenting the evidence of your achievements that is not reflected anywhere else in your application; the other being the description of how and why the episodes of your life have shaped your attitude, focus, and, of all your intellectual verve.
