    Hello, I'm writing my personal statement and don't know that is better to say that a decision to make was very hard. This one: It was almost the same decision to make as Shakespeare's Hamlet once said: "To be, or not to be. That's the question", only for me it sounded "To go, or not to go. That's the question".
    Or: So I came to a crossroad: I very badly wanted to go on that trip, but also couldn't miss biology olympiad.

    Which one is better?

    Thank you

    Think the first version sounds a bit corny.
    The second versions sounds a bit cliche.

    Just say it simply and clearly imo rather than dressing it up. They read thousands of PS a year so make your points efficiently and quickly imo. Why is it relevant? What are you hoping to show? How does it make you a more interesting/ suitable student?
