    Hey fellow cuber, I'm also applying to uni in a couple weeks but I'm not mentioning cubing either. I don't think it has much relevance in a personal statement, and there are more impressive things to mention. I guess if you have 100+ algs in your head and are averaging less than 13 seconds, or you can solve blindfolded, then it may look good.
    What are you applying for myca14?

    It was interesting because i mentioned it as one of my hobbies then i was encouraged to go into a bit more detail about logic, memory and intuitive thinking. So in a way it made sense to put it in (its better than saying "one of my hobbies is socialising") I had a lot of people proof read it and it was apparent that it was a good thing to have as a little extra fact about myself.

    If you are mentioning hobbies in a personal statement, it's definitely one of the more relevant and skillful ones to put down for sure. I guess it also relates to your course a lot more than it does to mine (I'm applying to Aeronautical and Chemical Engineering).
