Having known about the importance of personal statement, the next question emerging in our mind is that how to write it? Take a blank piece of paper and brainstorm a list of your skills, work experience, personal interests and qualities which are relevant to your application. Jot down these issues before you carve sentences and paragraphs. Be personal and concrete. Tell issues which makes your application unique from others. Be enthusiastic and show what you have actually done, and why you found them interesting. It may be very difficult for the academic officers to select you if your personal statement is not up to scratch, particularly when there are thousands of other candidates to choose from. You can qualify for the desired university only by writing a perfect personal statement; otherwise you may miss a chance, though you are academically sound.
E. Writing the draft _ Now that you have identified a theme, prepared an outline, and created a list of all the information you need, you can integrate them into an essay. This is the time to thresh out the ideas you have listed and combine them into manageable paragraphs that can be revised and re_revised later on. When writing your draft, a very important thing to consider is to write first and edit later. Do not worry about word count limit at this point, as you might prematurely edit your essay and unwittingly remove interesting or important information.
