The Interview Starting Point _ The personal statement is also the starting point for many interview discussions and questions. When committee members sit down to interview an applicant, they often have just a few minutes to skim the application. Your personal statement/essay provides the perfect amount of information for them. They can pick out a few key points and use it as the starting ground for your interview. If this is the only part of the application that they may read, you need to make it perfect.
The most convincing personal statements often consist of your academic records, accomplishments, and extra_curricular activities. It may also include any incredible circumstances, challenges, or adversities you have faced and the manner in which those bottlenecks have been overcome. There is nothing wrong in mentioning about your initiative, inspiration, headship, perseverance, and your ample experience in moving with other cultures. In short, all positive qualities or all achievements in light of the opportunities available to you can be mentioned.
