Why Do You Need Professional Personal Statement Editing?

Crafting a perfect personal statement is often half a success. During the latest admission cycle, the competition increased significantly. It means that even high GPAs and test scores are not enough to impress the admissions committee. In this case, a brilliant personal statement is the only way to stand out from the other applicants.

What are the criteria for the perfect personal statement? Let’s look through the main ones:

  • It should be specific and contain only relevant information;
  • A personal statement should highlight the motivation to choose the specific program;
  • It underlines your unique personality;
  • The essay contains persuading arguments;
  • It shows your strong sides and includes relevant skills, experiences, and qualities;
  • A personal statement has a perfect structure;
  • It corresponds to the style requirements;
  • It has no grammar or punctuation mistakes (or any other language inconsistencies);
  • Word choice and the essay’s formatting correspond to the provided instructions.

The list is quite long, and it’s essential to follow all the requirements before final submission. Many applicants believe that a personal statement is similar to an ordinary essay. But it’s not true. A personal statement is a specific paper that should follow a wide range of instructions. Thus, professional online personal statement editing is a good idea to ensure everything is OK with your application essay.

Our personal statement service unites the best professionals in editing and proofreading. They know how to make your personal statement outstanding. Besides, our editors are native English speakers. So, you can be sure that our experts will make a thorough check and eliminate all possible language inconsistencies.
