A personal statement is supposed to brief the reader, in no uncertain terms, what you are about and what you intend to do. If I know myself in and out and if I am aware of what the personal statement could do for me as far as admission to a graduate school, why do I insist on complicating matters by weaving in quotations and statistics? My personal statement has become so impersonal as to discuss the ramifications of television on society at large, the habits of my cube-mate, and how my schizophrenic mother tampered my ability to translate the world.
