    Hello everyone,

    Coming from my final year of a Psychology undergrad degree and applying to do the GDL at Exeter with ULaw, but struggling with writing my personal statement. I think the main difficulty is with my lack of law-related work experience. Has anyone had any experience of writing a GDL personal statement and if so what kind of structure did you use? Did you have any law-related experience when you applied? I have excellent written communication skills, e.g through essays and arguments for viewpoints in a report, and I'm a student representative so I'm used to arguing on behalf of the students in my faculty on a regular basis. I think I just need a valid way of wording it.

    Many thanks for any suggestions.

    It's not something you need to put a lot of thought into. Write something generic, they will offer you the place whatever.

    It's true. It can be very basic

    Your structure should be along the lines of:

    Hello
    I got a degree.
    I got money.
    Give me place please?

    That should be sufficient.

    They are private institutions that want your money.

    I wrote my PS over a bottle of wine, I'm sure it slurred off towards the end. Still got a place.

    As an experiment. Start the first few lines with the usual. Then write a story about a duck that went on an adventure to ASDA to buy some yoghurt. See if you still get in.

    I'd bet your tuition fees you'd still get a place.
