Automated personal statement writer using

For fun, I've used GPT3 from to create a personal statement writer that makes it easy for people to generate a first draft of a personal statement using a simple prompt of their topic. The application takes in two parts for the prompt: first, the topic (e.g., "running a law mowing business"), and second the type of school or programming to which the applicant is applying (e.g., "business school"). It then uses the openai GPT-3 api to generate a multi-paragraph personal statement. includes a page with personal statement examples that have been generated by itself in the past, to make it easier for folks to see and learn from each other.
