Just been looking at a couple of example P.S. and I have to wonder where some people get the time to do some much stuff.

Im pretty stuck on how to praise myself so much like people who can find the time to write for magazines, do everything in school then compete in every sport possible rolleyes.gif

I wouldn't look too much into that - they probably don't reflect the majority of people.

Just write about what hobbies/activities you do; how you enjoy them; and what you've gained from them.

If you thought that they were bad, look at this. rolleyes.gif tongue.gif

LOL. That's a bit OTT. I wrote up my personal statement at the weekend and want to get everything sorted and send away the form ASAP.

Yeah, it's quality! lol

My favourites are:

QUOTE
The laws of physics do not apply to me.

QUOTE
Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down

QUOTE
... But I have not yet gone to college.


In fact, all of it is funny!

That personal statement isn't perfect though: too much use of 'I'. wink.gif tongue.gif
