    It's a terrible idea. You don't know they're really at uni.

    I would say it's not worth it. They could plagiarise your statement. Give your personal statement to your tutor, they will be eager to check it out for you before you send it off.

    Don't do it. Honestly. Even if they don't plagiarise (high possibility) they could give you bad advise. Ask someone senior to you who knows that they're talking about.

    Don't send your personal statement to anybody you do not personally know. It's just not worth it - if something went wrong, it could derail your entire application.
