Having trouble with PS topic

Postby rnl1179 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:03 pm

I am having trouble choosing a PS topic. I have written several different personal statements yet none of them seem to be just right. I've written one that I don't want to post because its an extremely lackluster draft but that I think may be the topic. I have experienced multiple losses, 3 grandparents, brother in law, father, sisters father, uncle and brother, 3 of those losses suicide. I believe all of this has shaped me into the person that I have become because by being exposed to this at an early age (brother committed suicide when I was one and a half and all of the deaths continued from there) have shaped me into an extremely strong person. Are they going to think this topic is too morbid?

Probably too morbid. What are the other topics?

I don't think it's too morbid if you maybe focus on one of those losses that influenced a new perspective, and discuss how it shaped you.
