    My personal statement has been flagged by the similarity detection software…i've had my application for consideration for a while by now and still haven't gotten any offers. I was wondering has anyone with a personal statement like that received any offers yet?

    Did you copy anything from another one? If not then it will probably just be due to either a random check or because most PSs follow the same kind of structure and thus one or two will always be flagged.

    no, it was just a lot of the standard phrases everyone tends to use in their personal statement…I've called the unis they've said its not that bad but i should send them a new one, which i did. Did that about a month ago and still haven't received anything…its become a bit worrying by now

    Is there anything wrong about what I said?
    Why should someone who lies and plagiarises get into university?

    Coupled with the fact that you seem to think women get angrier the longer they have a tampon in makes this post an utter fail.

    Did they tell you they had sent your application off before they contacted you about it a month ago?
    Don't worry about it, loads of people still haven't got their offers yet - if you sent them a new one it should be okay.

    Maybe you should conform to the laws of Social Darwinism and go play in traffic.
    But there's no evidence that OP has actually plagiarised, so it was very presumptuous.

    And if OP did write the 47 lines himself, then University's for him it seems.
