Personal Statement - EconomicsWatch
The only help she has provided is reading the first 2 paragraphs then offering the single phrase of advice ‘show don’t tell’. She hasn’t emailed me back in 3 and a half weeks. My application was due to be sent off at the end of October.
Not sure if I’m allowed to upload it. General tips for an economics personal statement would be very much appreciated.
I have trialled something in it that I’m not too sure about. I’ve stated arguments on a particular economic issue, from an economist article, and used them to directly ask questions that I myself want answered. Example: Michael Saunders’ arguments on low wage growth in conjunction with tough welfare rules began making me ask questions on how unemployment can be sustainably dealt whilst ensuring sufficient wage growth.. (this has then been tied to an issue of today, the issue of universal credit) . Note: I just wrote that off the top of my head. It is more eloquently put, and more detailed, within the actual PS.
To summarise the last paragraph of this, should I ask actual questions within my PS that I want answering?
Thanks for any help!
