Would anyone like to work together on their personal statements?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm in the process of finishing up my personal statements; however, I don't really have anyone who I can ask to edit them. I've asked friends to help me out, but it gets annoying when all they do is glance over my work and say "yeah, this is good". 

With that in mind, I was wondering if anyone would like to work together on personal statements? We can read over each others work, provide our own input and share our opinions about the structure / content of written material. We can chat over Zoom, Discord or any other platform that is sufficient. 

Feel free to DM me, or just comment below. 

 

Cheers.

awesome! I can set up a whatsapp group and go from there. If you're not comfortable with that, which messaging app works for you?

great to hear! I'll begin to get everything organized. I'd prefer to make a whatsapp group to start off but of course some people might be uncomfortable with that. What works for you?

I'm not sure about your school, but many offer writing free writing consultations for students and grads. I go to UBC and the consultations have been very helpful, especially since you can choose a consultant whose background works best for you (I've been receiving support from a PhD student at Allard for example). Maybe give it a google to see if there are similar services available at your school! :)

    • Does anyone else's application say incomplete due to transcripts missing? OLSAS has sent mine out so I am kind of confused
    • Ok thank god, I have the same problem with Queens too. As long as I didn't miss some sort of critical deadline I can breathe again. 
    • GPA's were posted and then removed for everyone I believe. Schools have your transcript so I don't think it's necessary for your GPA to be posted in order to be considered but idk for sure. Some schools calculate their own GPA's anyways. 
    • If you are talking about Ottawa, many students had a problem with their applications saying "not complete" and apparently Ottawa said they get the materials in waves as opposed to all at once so it is on the school, not you. I would say wait a little bit and if it still says incomplete, contact the school directly. It is possible they just haven't updated their site either.   EDIT: But yes. OLSAS/OUAC sends it to the schools
    • Im seeing that OLSAS sends them to schools. So why are my schools saying transcript not received? Do they wait for the GPA update?
