I'm currently in the process of writing my personal statements and short essays for a variety of summer research programs/internships. I still have not found a formulaic way to write, so I was just wondering how successful applicants among yall have approached them? Do you utilize a narrative and try to write a well written essay, or do you go straight to the point and directly answer their questions about yourself, experiences, hobbies, etc etc?
