    Im on my gap year at the moment and am applying to study Biology next year at university.

    I was wondering can I write that I have applied for a volunteer job at the Natural History Museum in my personal statement. Since I haven't actually got the place, is this valid?

    Thanks,

    It's probably not worth writing that you've just applied for it. When will you hear about the job? One option would be to delay writing your PS a bit until you find out, if you think it will really help your application to include this.
