Review my PS?

Post by beezy08 » Tue Jul 19, 2011 5:19 pm

Is anyone willing to review my PS? It is my first, roughest draft but I am really not certain where to go from here or if its even good.

Also, a lot of schools seems to emphasize tailoring it to that school. You may have to read my PS to tell, but how exactly do I do that? I would like to do so subtly (and obviously not have to write a bunch of different statements), but I do want that school to know I am applying there for a reason. I can't view applications at half the schools I am applying to yet, so that may make a difference if they have specific optional essays that address why I chose that school.

I'll take a look at it.

FWIW, my PS is not tailored towards specific schools in any way. I plan to address that in supplemental Why X essays. From what I understand, Why X essays are discouraged for T6, but accepted at all others and encouraged by most. It's only necessary at your reach schools though, maybe your targets if you have the time. Also keep in mind that if you're on the edge somewhere, writing a LOCI can be effective in getting off a waitlist.
