    Hi,

    Will anyone be as generous to read through my personal statement and point out any mistakes and gives advice on the structure, please?
    I'd like some extra opinions as I know how important this is.

    I am not english native speaker, therefore it would be a major service.

    I'd like to ask someone that is trustworthy and respected on the forum, as I know personal statement's are important...

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I'd be happy to read through it and offer help where necessary. If you're comfortable with sharing it with me then pm because it's safer. Also what course(s) are you applying for?

    You shouldn't send your PS to anyone over the internet - plagiarism is very real and you cannot control what happens to it after you send it to someone. Get your English teacher to read over it

    Oh, I am very well aware of the plagiarism. However, I pointed out that I'll send to a "respected" member of the forum like yourself, for instance. I wouldn't worry about plagiarism.

    Apart from the mods, you can't really tell if someone is respected. Say they have a lot of rep, or a lot of posts, that doesn't mean anything in relation to trustworthiness for this sort of thing. The mods won't do it - there is a paid service you can access through TSR (at the end of the PS builder tool), and the mods would not compromise that
