Getting Started on Your Personal Statement

The personal statement is a key element of your application to graduate or professional school and this two-part workshop is designed to get you off to an informed start. The first hour will provide important background, introducing you to exactly what a personal statement is, how to think about your audience and what your goals might be.

The second hour (optional) will introduce some of the key writing techniques of effective statements, look at some examples and actually get you drafting. If you have already started writing your personal statement (great!), bring your draft with you. If you haven’t written anything yet, well, after this session you will!
