So I submitted my personal statement the other day and after i submitted it, a reliable source told me one thing I should really emphasize when writing it; however, I almost did the opposite. In a panic, I emailed my regional officer asking if I could change it if possible. Except, I don't want it to look like someone told me to change it. So here is my question... How much can the personal statement hurt me? or What is some advice for this situation?? I'm freaking out, I don't want this to be a breaking point of something stupid just because I wasn't positive of what to write.
