I started my law course in october, and to be honest hated it, which was unsuprising as i was more persuaded into studying law than choosing it for myself, as at the time i was having difficulty making a clear choice. The uni that i was at wouldnt allow me to change courses, so i decided to drop out and i am now reapplying for entry this september (not to my original university) for history and politics and straight history. i realise im cutting it EXTREMELY fine considering my form has to be in by the 15th, but i heard that its not a good idea to include literary/historical quotes in your personal statement - anyone know if theres any truth in this? also, any other advice for history personal statements? any advice is welcome as im sooooooo screwed!!

only use a quote if you know everything about the quote and person as they may ask you about it on open days or interviews. It can help but a lot of people put quotes on personal statements so its not rare or new. Just make sure your beginning and end are strong enough to make the reader sit back and go "wow".
