    (is this allowed? lol)

    Someone who feels they can do so properly? ie, review and make suggestions?

    Before you suggest it, i've already posted in the PS section, however I haven't had a reply for 3/4 days and im really pressing for time now. (EDIT: not in a rude way or anything, i know they have their own work to do and stuff)

    Anyone? I'm not applying for a top uni or anything so it shouldn't be too difficult!

    I wouldn't give it to people other than those in the PS section, because all of those in the PS section are already at university or whatever, so they 100% will not be copying anything from your work. Giving it to anybody else could cause them to copy it or get ideas from it, which I assume you do not want.

    I had to wait a while last year for them to reply, but that's because they have so many to read; this is a good thing though, because they will be able to give you much better, objective, advice than somebody who has only ever read their own PS, if that.

    You are aware that there is often a long queue, which the PS Helpers try to get through as quickly as possible. However, if you need your statement by a particular date, then it is advised that you make sure you post it in plenty of time.

    I'm going through the last drafts of mine now and showing it to a few friends in university. THEN I'll be putting it on for the PS helper. It's worth waiting they really are great.

    I'm applying on my own too but you could go and ask an ex tutor if you really are concerned, even drop them an email and ask them if they could possibly review it.

    If it's been three days since you posted, the thread gets tagged with a red bold font to draw the attention of the helpers. You are a priority, and someone should get to you reasonably soon.

    yes of course i am, i didn't mean it in a rude way or anything, i was just saving everyone telling me to go and post it in the PS section.

    i do understand that they are taking time out of their own schedules to help etc.
