    Heylo.

    Does anyone know of a website where I can have my personal statement looked at/reviewed by someone? Like, preferably someone who knows what they're talking about?

    I can't seem to find any but I would have thought they existed. :confused:

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I am not saying in any shape or form that the TSR PS team aren't helpful or any good, so please don't accuse me of that!

    Yeah I meant other than TSR! I'm not stupid hehe! I posted it on here but I haven't had any replies for a bit (week and two days i think), haha well, except to tell me off for putting something in the wrong thread! *slaps wrist*

    Yeah so anyway, it seems people are busy, so I was wondering if there any others? That are free?

    So I was just looking for an alternative to see if anyone could get back to be quicker!
    go easy on us, that's not my area so i can't look over it, and we are students we do have other things on, a lot of uni deadlines coming up for most of us, you already had a 1st review, and 1st drafts take priority, someone prob look over it in a few days, making thread like these never helps as it seems our work is not good enough lol

    just wait

    They went through my personal statement here on TSR. They were extremely helpful actually, they will eventually look at it.

Im not having a go at all, im just explaining why im asking the question, and of course i appreciate you have other things to do and don't need to bother with it at all etc, but i just want to get it sent off soon so i was asking for somewhere else? I didnt even mention it in the first post its just everyone was going TSR TSR! There's no need to be rude

    Just type it into google. TSR is the only free site. Oxbridge Admissions and their ilk will charge you £80 a time :rolleyes:

    Someone will get round to your statement in time. Is it for Oxbridge, and which subject area? (Oxbridge statements are usually left for Helpers who are at Oxford and Cambridge, and many of us don't have time until the break in early December)

    Yeah thats what i was looking for, other free sites... no it's not for Oxbridge of anything! I'm not that clever! It's for Politics (2009), no universities in the top 30... the prices on that Oxford website are soo expensive :eek:

    That's my area, so I'll have a look at your next draft for you. I'm generally on leave from Helping during term time, so it will be a one-off.

    Oh thank you, that's really kind! I have my draft done (first one) so let me know when you'd be able to look at it? Just as a one off! Thanks really appreciated
