Slightly stressed out! I am writing my Personal Statement for Law, which is essentially an amalgamation of all the Law related events I have been accepted at UCL and other prestigious universities, but now I am frightened that I run the risk of sounding horrendously pretentious.
What's more I have an Oxbridge Personal Statement review on Thursday with our entire UCAS application expected by Monday! You see, I do not want to give the impression that I am trying to be what I am not, I honestly DO speak the way I have written, but I fear admissions tutors will take one look at it and assume I am trying too hard!
I am only applying to one, maybe two Universities which offer interviews, but the rest will just base my offer on my predicted grades and Reference and other variables.
Any advice? Someone please help!!

Almost everyones ps sounds pretentious - you're essentially trying to convince the uni to accept you so they expect this. Just make sure it is balanced and there is some personal information about you but honestly from what you've said it seems to me as if you have demonstrated that you have motivation and enthusiasm for law so I wouldn't worry too much.
