Personal Statements

If you are thinking about applying to graduate school your personal statement will be an important part of your application. This is your opportunity to express your professional aspirations and any relevant experience. Done well, the personal statement helps to set you apart from other candidates with similar training. Similar to a cover letter or personal essay, the personal statement is an organized and compelling document highlighting the experiences and ambitions that lead you to desire a more advanced degree.
