    PS is really important, if it's **** and you send it chances are that you will be rejected. Post your PS and you'll get opinions and advice.

    I can tell you that a great PS is not cheesy, and I advise you to remove all traces of cheddariness.

    I think my PS was fairly decent, and it wasn't cheesy at all.

    For the record I have re wrote my PS and I'm quite pleased with it.
    I have played it simplish (that is not a word), kept it babble free and been quite modest.

    If you have that in every other sentence it is not cheesy - it is just bad! Is de-worming orphans relevant to engineering? I don't understand what you are talking about with "bernards watch" (sic).

    bernards watch was a kids program years ago where the kid (named bernard :rolleyes:) owned a magical watch that could stop time... :rolleyes:

    de worming orphans comment is quite simple, 'holier than thou' B/S easy to figure also sarcastic.

    and my new PS is quite nice I think.

    What if they actually did, and it was relevant to their course? (Don't ask for suggestions, I don't know enough about de-worming orphans or many other courses than the one I am applying for).
