Another reu personal statement thread

  1. Jan 3, 2013 #1
    I don't think anyone really likes these threads, but I could use some assistance. Could anyone offer me some criticism on my statement of purpose below, for an REU? This one is really an amalgamation of a couple of ones that I wrote for specifically for different programs, which all more of less asked me to briefly explain why I was interested in research and the fields I was interested in, as well as describing past experiences. In this way instead of posting 6 different ones, I will just absorb what I learn from this one. I am particularly concerned with the opening


    any suggestions/criticisms would be appreciated, thanks. Also let me know if you cannot access the doc

    I would totally be down to proofreading this, but I'm one of the cool kids that only has Hotmail and has no intention of getting a Google Docs account until I absolutely have to. Please feel free to PM the document to me.

    He was probably thinking of the 24-hour rule:

    Do not "bump" one of your threads to the top of a forum's thread list by posting a basically empty message to it, until at least 24 hours have passed since the latest post in the thread; and then do it only once per thread.

    But I congratulate him on KNOWING the rules

    I responded to your message.

    Anyone who was wondering - the Google doc has been taken down.
