After writing, scrapping the entire thing, rewriting, editing, over and over, with over 15 people reading it once, twice, three times, no one ever CLOSE to agrees and I. GIVE. UP.
My personal statement got to the point where people just liked it. A few comments to be nitpicky, but there was consensus. I want my 250 to be the same way.
I know it's terrible, but I can't help but chuckle for a split second at your misery, if only because we had radically different approaches to this whole process. I wrote my PS in three two-hour sessions and my Yale 250 in a Friday night/Saturday morning. No other person has as much as glanced at my resume, PS, supplemental essays, or 250. can't say I recommend this method, as I totally left out an apostrophe in my resume and a preposition in my PS
Congrats on the submission! Best of luck!
