On the other hand, the person statement for UMass Boston (3, actually, as they have three questions they want applicants to address) is like pulling teeth. I have sat down numerous times for an hour or two at a stretch and somehow eked out a few sentences each time, none of which flow or feel good or tie together or even manage to convince me, much less someone who's not me, that I'm excited about this program. Does this mean I'm not excited about this program? I don't think so! Whenever I look at the web page, I think, "Hey, this is really awesome! How cool would it be to be doing this??" And then I flip the window over to my personal statement and think, "Buuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh..."
Do you have any idea how aggravating this is??
