Before the fall semester starts, I was thinking of starting my Personal Statement. As I was reading about PS and how to begin, I had a sudden thought that I wanted feedback on. Advanced warning, this is going to sound unusual but it's just something that popped into my mind the other night. What do you all think of starting a PS off with an obituary? Or a Legacy Will/Last Lecture type of opening? Does anyone know of anyone who has done this? Last semester I took a Lifespan Development class. And part of our last assignment was to write our own obituary. My obit is not long, or boisterous or anything like that. It's just my personal sincere thoughts on how I would like to be remembered, not recognized; as a person committed to a life of service to others. So with that said, what do you think? Thanks.
