Along with good practices, there are some things which can destroy reader experience and therefore should be avoided by all means.
Don’t divert from the topic. A personal statement’s task is to capture a reader’s attention and provide them with concentrated information while preventing them from losing interest in your narration. So be as specific as possible. Clean your paper of any unnecessary information, which does not enhance reader experience or can interrupt tracking the core idea. Remember: quality rather than the amount of text is important. This type of paper typically has no strict size requirements to meet.
Never compose this important paper hastily. Prepare thoroughly, write thoughtfully and hone the final text afterwards. A good idea is to take a day of break once the text is ready and then return to it to re-read and make corrections. If the story sounds boring to you, don’t hesitate to start the work from scratch to come up with a new, not an adjusted, version.
Also, avoid using template papers or plagiarized texts. This kind of fraud is easily revealed by a skilled admission officer.
