    Please don't bump a thread after only ten minutes. The PS Help service is undergoing revision at the moment and is unavailable. Feel free to use the PS builder tool and the PS library in the meantime, but don't send your ps to people on a public forum without safeguards.

    Maybe you should ask someone you know to look it over, as opposed to a bunch of complete strangers.

    I'm afraid not. We are not permitted to use the PM system and the other system is closed at the moment. I suggest you ask a teacher to look at it at the start of term. There is no rush.

    I have no one to ask. It has to be someone who for starters knows what a personal statement is (I'm not from the UK) and there are lots of people here who are good at this.
    Sorry, but as Carnation said, the PS Helpers cannot help you via PM. No-one else is checked, so don't send it to anyone you don't know on the internet.

    I'm not from the UK either. I'm not a student anymore either, but that doesn't mean there is no one for me to ask.

    You're a teacher? I had pizza today, then Mango juice in a can and then this nice Turkish dessert called Knafeh. Good day at the office also :-)))

    I'll have a look for you if you want, granted you trust me with it. I've just finished doing mine for the second time so I may be able to help.

    Not really appropriate as he should not really email a PS

    I wouldn't share it online buddy, anyone could pinch off your sentences. Ask your teachers when you get back to school.

    I'd be happy to check it out mi amigo. Don't know much about personal statements but know plenty about writing and what people want to read, if you want advice from that perspective.

    edit: on second thoughts yeah maybe you shouldn't share it on the internet.

    Thanks for the offers, but maybe its not a good idea to share it as has been said. I guess we'll just have to wait for the PS Help Service to open again :-)))))))

    OP PLEASE don't send your PS to someone online. You have no guarantees that they know what they're talking about or that they aren't also applying this year.

    Sounds like a good idea

    If it doesn't look like TSRG will have their new service up and running in time we (the existing PS helpers) will try to sort something out
