    I am going to be applying for multiple universities soon going for the games programming courses. I have my opening paragraph and I just wanna see if I am on the right track with my writing, this is by no means the finished product, infact I intend to change a lot of it but I just need to know if I should change my mindset in the way I approach the personal statement.

    This is my current opening paragraph.

    The joy of getting to a publicly posted ps in as short a time as possible. It's a bleak existence.

    I rather think that was because you've posted in the fantasy ps thread and have graduated long ago. But I could be wrong.

    Done. I suggest you re-write your opening paragraph and make it different to the current one.
