ahaha, thanks! but to be fair I had a lot less presure on me than you British students. There were two things I had going for me, one was that my academic record was sound and secondly I had already been accepted into law/comm at the university of western australia and was perfectly happy going there if LSE didnt pan out. So..I was kinda in a slightly less precarious position than you all are. If anyone reallllly wants to read it, PM me.(Original post by Adhsur)
Me too I want to see it!
Seriously, I applaud your courage, I doubt I'd ever feel creative enough to do something like that on something so important! Especially considering I could present myself much better in the normal way. It IS a big risk, and in your case it paid off. If I was an admissions tutor, I don't know what I'd infer about your academic record but it would certainly bring a smile to my face after a long busy day of reading through so many generic statements. Having said that, you CAN make a personal statement good without doing something so festive with it. But congrats anyway!

Congrats on the offers ! I don't think I could take a risk like that... especially as creative writing probably isn't my forte, I prefer analytical stuff. It's a fair point though - I bet tutors get sooooo sick of reading all those statements with the same basis: why I love my subject, what my extra curric is, blahblah... Still, I would imagine that's the formula most people use and some of them must get in! Basically, I think it's easier to take that risk if you have impeccable grades. If so, you have less to prove and can show your imaginative flair or whatever with less pressure to follow conventional formulae.
