Personal Statement Review

Need help with your personal statement?


CollegeLAH’s volunteer editors are happy to provide personal statement advice to students who are applying to UK Universities this year.  Our volunteers will help to read through your personal statements, and will try their very best to provide you with feedback on the content based on their application experiences

Disclaimer: CollegeLAH’s team is solely made up of students who have pulled through the application processes. We have first hand experiences but we do not claim to be admission gurus. Any comments/feedback given are based on our personal experiences- what worked for us might not be the best possible ways to produce personal statements. The only way to be sure that you’re on the right track is to consult your college’s University Placement Center or MABECS.

CollegeLAH editors

If you prefer, you may also request that our UK team members edit/comment on your Personal Statement personally. Please bear in mind that if our own editors are congested with applications, they will be forwarded to a volunteer editor with your written consent instead. Likewise, if our volunteer editors are congested, your application may be forwarded to one of our own editors.

How it works?

Send us a copy of your personal statement and the following details to psessaycheck@collegelah.com.

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Current Institution
  • Pre-University subjects
  • Course of study you are applying for in university
  • Intended universities
  • Two preferred editors (will only be sent to one)
  • College/School’s internal deadline for submission

We will forward your personal statement to your “Preferred Editors” ONLY.  However, in the event that the particular Editor has too many outstanding requests, we will forward your personal statement to another editor with similar credentials with prior written consent from you. Similarly, if you do not state a preferred editor, the personal statement will then be sent to a member of the CollegeLAH Team to be edited. Please do note that the CollegeLAH admin team may view it for administrative purposes.

You will receive an email from the regional correspondent indicating that your personal statement has indeed been forwarded to an editor. Your editor has been told to connect with you within two days upon receiving your personal statement. You can then decide, alongside with your volunteer editor, a suitable timeframe and medium of communication that you both are comfortable on working with. Should there not be any contact from your volunteer after two days, we kindly request that you inform us. Your personal statement will then be reverted to a member of the CollegeLAH Team to be personally edited.

The editor will read through your essay thoroughly and provide you with feedback based on his/her application experience, via email, Google Docs and/or Microsoft Word. The method of correspondence between you and your editor is entirely up to you and his/her discretion. Keep in mind that we are not admissions professionals but students with first hand experiences willing to share with you. It’s always a good idea to check with your university placement center before submitting it!

Don’t worry if you are applying to a course not mentioned above. Our volunteers have agreed to take on other personal statements if required. We are providing this as a free service, and we ask that in return, you ‘like’ and share our Facebook page so that your friends can also benefit from what is shared here. Please do send us a link/screencap showing that you have done so. 🙂 You may opt out if you wish to, there is no obligation on this at all.

We wish you all the best with your UCAS application!

    1. Hi Roberta! Thanks for visiting our site and thanks for raising the concern.

      We will forward your personal statement to your “Preferred Volunteer” ONLY. However, in the event that the particular volunteer has too many outstanding requests, we will forward your personal statement to another volunteer with similar credentials, with prior written consent from you. We will NOT sell your personal statement online.
