Hey guys...

I just got the message "Your personal statement is too long to be saved" on UCAS...

He he... My statement is a massive 69 lines over... Can anyone beat that?

Any advice on cutting it down?

Thanks

Jason

Try and squeeze all your extra-curriculars into a single, big(ish) paragraph.

Keep it relevant!

Yeah I will try that... I just don't know what to take out... I'm trying to show my enthusiasm for the subject... but can't say it in 47 lines!!!

I am struggling with mine...would you be willing to give me some of your excess material...I'd be very grateful!!

Seriously, what are you appying to do?

Can you lose lots of individual words?

PM me with it, if you want, and I'll see what could be cut out.

lol...

I am applying for Law... its just that I have done so much to make me stand out as a law student and I want the admissions tutors to know exactly what i did, how it helped me, etc...

I ramble on about being the best law student, blah, balh...

he he...thanks for your help anyway, but my headteacher said he would chop it up...

thanks again

Try to narrow it down. I hope for the future students that apply to univesity, they would allow a maximum of 60 lines instead of 47.
