For the 500 word personal statement requirement, did anyone edit existing personal statements? Or should I just give in and write one specifically for FSU? Hoping to finish up the app to submit tonight.
I hacked my 1,100 word PS down to about 530 and pretty much eliminated any narrative power there might have been. Still did just fine.
If your numbers are borderline and you want to go there, though, I'd take the time to write a separate one.
