Creating a Personal Statement

Included in our comprehensive advising package.

Creating a personal statement is your first opportunity to introduce yourself to admissions officers and scholarship judges. It is one of those rare occasions when it is okay to “brag” about yourself and your accomplishments. It can be used to tell a story about a unique experience or to highlight an exceptional accomplishment. It can also be used to explain shortfalls on your transcript. Whatever you choose to write needs to be in your voice, using your words, telling your distinct story.
