How long did it take you all to write your PS? From the time you wrote your first draft, till the final draft.
How many revisions did you do?
All summer, really. I think that's probably overkill but I believe you should submit it, knowing you gave your all. I revised it numerous times and what I ended up with looked nothing like the original. It really depends on your background and story but the grammar, lexis and structure should be flawless.
Run it by as many people as possible and take criticisms in stride. Good luck.
If your PS turned out great its not overkill. I have a good idea of where I'm heading, i'm just trying to make it sound more 'professional' and less story-like. Its funny i walk around my apartment reading out loud to make sure it sounds right. My roommates prob think I'm crazy.
I don't think "story-like" is necessarily a bad thing for a PS
