Angelle solicited opinions:
Sorry if this has been answered before but...
In your opinion, do you think that the personal statement should be more of a letter (like closer to, say, a cover letter you'd write to a company, but obviously about yourself and writing and goals) or more of a narrative/college-type essay (where it's almost a little creative non-fic/slice-of-life format)?
My opinion is that the personal statement should be a combination of both. This is only my opinion. Does anyone else have any strongly-held notions regarding Angelle's question? Please do chime in and let readers know.
