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! :)

    • If some one I interviewed mentioned they’re really into Hollow Knight I would probably hire them on the spot so we could be done with the pesky work stuff and then spend the next hour speculating on when SilkSong is coming out. 
    • I worked on a remote basis as a summer student in private practice in 2020. For OP and anyone who might be worried about the uncertainties of how that works out, in my experience the technology set up was the easy part, as in the support staff did their jobs well and I rarely had technical difficulties, but unfortunately there is just no perfect substitute for walking by someone's office and poking your head in for a chat about work/non-work stuff. There were one or two lawyers who went out of their way to reach out and set up calls with me just to chat and get to know each other more casually, and it was super special knowing that they intentionally took time out of their day to make a student feel welcomed. The lawyers who assigned me work were very approachable and encouraged reaching out via texts/calls but I pretty much did not interact with lawyers who were not in the habit of working with students. My group chat with my fellow students was a life line, though, we watched out for one another and helped each other out with lessening the load when some of us were drowning in deadlines or needed an extra hand with specific tasks. That's the other thing with getting work assignments remotely, lawyers wouldn't oversee/overhear what their colleagues are doing in the students' area of the office and they also wouldn't be able to just walk by the students and see how busy/not busy they seem to be. The responsibility is on the student to assess their workload and decide if they need to de-prioritize and re-negotiate certain tasks and deadlines or recommend the lawyer to assign the task to another, less busy student.
    • Hello everyone, just a question on re-submitting a transcript to make sure I'm doing this correctly - I simply re-send the transcript request on OLSAS, correct? 
    • Yes there are multiple versions of the test administered although I'm not sure how many. I had some different passages, games etc. from other people who sat the LSAT in the same month as me.
    • Hey everyone! I write tomorrow and made the stupid mistake of reading how some people found their LSAT that they took yesterday. While doing so, I realized people could talk about the exam online and give pointers that could possibly increase someone's chances (I'm not going to go into too much detail but essentially there is a certain question type).    I was wondering if there are multiple different tests that are administered?   Thank you
