So here is something about myself. My name is Suze Jack Zhang and I’m originally from China. I lived in Vancouver Canada for about 7 years with my mom and then I decided to come to study in the States in year 2010. I choose Berkeley because I’d like to be a UC Berkeley student since my intended major is Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I have worked in a Canada premier computer store, NCIX, for one year. My job was to help people fix their computer problems, including both software and hardware issues, such as virus infection and damaged hard-drive. I’m not sure how to connect this experience to my major, which is all about programming. This is also my first time using Rushessay, so I’m not sure if you can make up something or exaggerate my experience to strengthen my application. I’m a 4.0 international student who have taken all my classes at Berkeley City College and Laney College. Unfortunately, I have been rejected last year by UC Berkeley and I think the main reason was my personal statement. I will also send you my old personal statement. I’m currently also working part-time job at Laney College in the Mathlab as a math tutor. I’m not sure what personal quality I should write about in the second part of my personal statement. I’m responsible, independent, smart, and tough. I’m also friendly, out-going, caring, and thoughtful. I have donated blood and volunteered in church and elder home. I think I still have a lot of things that I need to tell you so that you can help me write a better personal statement, so please let me what else you need know. Thanks.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
