Hi guys, I'm working on my personal statement. I'm a math and cs major, and I'm gonna apply to grad schools apply in theoretical computer science. I'm trying to figure out how I should format my statement, what I should talk about, etc. I don't want to make it sound like everyone else's (so that means I really really shouldn't format it like I would a resume, right?) I guess I want to use my personal to explain what in TCS I'd be interested in, and why I am interested in those areas. To be honest, I don't have much concrete experience in TCS, since my school is a bit more computer-engineering oriented. But I have TONS of experience in mathematical logic, because this school happens to be very strong in mathematical logic. I don't really want to go into pure math though. I want to do something applied, so after looking at some papers/books, I really think I would be interested in learning about applications of logic to computer science. I can't claim having much experience in TCS, though. I also have research experience in pure math (not logic), and in cs (nothing related to logic), but I didn't find those experiences very relevant. Should I leave those out of my statement then? I wanted to focus on logic being the reason why I might be interested in TCS. Any suggestions?
