    Slowly working on the third draft of my personal statement.
    I finished my first draft months ago but haven't looked at it since and have just 2 weeks or so to go now :facepalm:

    I did that too for a while and was so annoyed at myself, but I'm hoping to make up for it by working hard on it now. :/ I don't have long to go either. What subject are you applying for?

    I am sure you will be fine.

    I also wrote a PS last year (didn't get any offers though) so kind of just took out the bad things from my last one, kept the good ones and added the things uni's said I should add in their feedback.

    Medicine, you?

    Would writing about a summer school in the same subject that you're applying for count as 'academic' or 'non-academic' in a PS?

    Not anymore it isn't. I did put it in rice but my Dad has taken it out and assumed it's dead so I can't give it a chance now:mad:

    I kind of needed a new phone anyway, it's super slow and I always had issues with the memory. I don't know what phone to get now though

    My recently deceased phone was a HTC Wildfire S and that was a pain in the butt. I might try the Nexus though...
    I can't afford an iPhone but I don't want to drift over to Windows phones due to their lack of apps and things.
