    Advice for personal statement

    I'm just writing a personal statement for a course I want to get on, it says "up to 200 words" but I was just wondering what people think is the minimum to go for? I'm thinking no lower than 170ish?

    no minimum amount, when you feel like you've finished, you've finished don't try to increase the amount of words used, you'll lose fluency.

    So I shouldn't just write "I like flipflops" 10 times at the end to add the missing 30 words? lol

    Enter and much as it takes to be clear about your skills and evidence of your skills.

    I put together a 4000 word essay recently and it seemed never ending to me :x

    OP: As awoodhall says mostly it is +/- 10% I would keep very close to 200 mark.
