Getting Started on the Personal Statement- in AA160

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 part 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 part (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!


*This session is part of the Career Compass Certificate.
Please sign up on the Intranet. Also, please note that this workshop may be cancelled if registration is less than 10 people 24 hours prior to the session.
