Good morning,

I was hoping to get some guidance on the IPAP personal statement. Does each branch have different things they are looking for within a personal statement (I'm not sure if each branch has their own selection board or not)?

Should there be a personal story in there to avoid sounding cookie cutter? With such a small word count, it is challenging to figure out what to write that will make an impact...to be honest, I am not even sure where to start. 

FYI, I am asking this on behalf of someone else (active Navy IDC). In my experience with civilian PA programs, the personal statement is a big deal, does it not carry the same weight in IPAP? 

Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you.
