    Hi tsr!

    I am writing my pharmacy personal statement now and my college english teacher, subject teachers and admission teacher will check it for me afterwards.

    I am of course getting opinions from my family too, that includes my parents and elder sisters who are both in the field but only for about 2 years experience.

    I have done a week of job attachment and the pharmacist there was amazing. Although we have only communicated for 2 days because they work on shift, I really admire him. He is about 10 years older but it seems like he has so much experience in the field.

    Should I ask for his opinion too? Will it be weird if I message him out of the blue?

    Definitely - he will have done his personal statement too and I am sure will be delighted to help you. The more people you have check it the better

    Definitely worth asking him to check it. Every person who reads it can give new opinions and ideas.
