Successful Personal Statement for Graduate School I
A well-written personal statement enables you to persuasively present yourself to an admissions committee whose members have never met you. This is the first of a two-part workshop designed to assist students in brainstorming, drafting and revising their personal statement for graduate school. In this workshop, we will discuss the structure of an effective personal statement, as well as tips and guidelines to help you distinguish yourself from other applicants. We will also brainstorm possible “hooks” for your personal statement.
