Q: How can Go Enrol help my personal statement?
A: We can help in several situations. The most common situation is that you have already written a draft and want a professional to check whether you are writing clearly, about the right type of topics and to proofread for any mistakes. What is important is that it is your voice, so when giving our feedback and suggested edits we work hard to ensure it remains personal to you.
Q: I have written not one word of my personal statement. Can Go Enrol help me?
A: Yes. In this situation we would recommend you choose one of our packages where you will speak to a member of our team via Skype. They will brainstorm with you about what you could include and how best to make your case. Following this conversation and you successfully having a first draft complete we will do a further review of it.
