It would be unwise if you started writing without a clear direction or goal. Personal Statements can vary in word count and style.

Conducting a read_through _ A read_through is extremely important. It allows you to step back and examine the points you have made and their relation to the theme and the entire essay. For example, you might discover a certain section that did not help at all in supporting your main theme, or some details that could be better placed in the CV instead. Some even prefer to read their essay aloud or have it read to them so that they can spot lapses or gaps in coherence.
