If you had to give one piece of advice about writing personal statements what would it be?

There are many handy tips to consider when writing your personal statement, but if I were to select just one it would be to ensure that each and every sentence is unique to you. Ask yourself:

1. Could any other candidate have written that sentence? 
2. What does that sentence add to the reader's impression of me? 

Generic sentences will switch-off the reader and no candidate wants to do that. A personal statement filled with anecdotes and insights will go far. Don't just say 'I found my work experience interesting and enjoyable', tell them why! What memorable moments occured? Who did you converse with? What were your ultimate impressions of the experience? These unique sentiments will transform an average personal statement into a fascinating one.
