there are alot of helpful people willing to help you out with personal statement. myself included.
i think there were a huge list of people willing to proofread personal statements posted some time ago.
many of them were very qualified, and successful applicants who have been accepted to several excellent schools.

yes, I think that what I need. I have my personal statement ready, but I would like to receive comments from professionals. I already got comments from some of my friends and people whos commetns andCydney Foote said:There are lots of editing services out there, and yes, there are lots of applicants that use them successfully. The reputable ones will NOT write your essay for you, but they will help you develop a compelling strategy for your personal statement and subsequent secondary essays as well as polish your writing.
One advantage of using these services (over friends, profs, or school services) is that the editors often have more comprehensive insights into what the admissions committees are looking for. The disadvantage is, of course, the cost - these services can be expensive. But for many people, they're worth it.
I'd definitely encourage you to check out the free resources that editing services offer. There are lots at Accepted.com, and other companies like EssayEdge also offer all sorts of free advice.

opinion I value. Advisors and professors do not put as much time in reading your personal statement as people who get paid for it. So thanks for advice and web address.
Sorry, it was a lame attempt at humor.Dr. N said:what do you mean, I did not mention SDN in that message. I let my friends read PS (they are not part of SDN)

In response to your orriginal question, I would post your PS with a solicitation for help on SDN. I only used family and friends to help me with mine and I feel like it was the weakest part of my application.
Not only are there people with amazing writing skills on SDN, most have been through the application process (quite a few sucsessfully) so they can offer insight on what may be good content to add in addition to fixing your grammar.
