As much as writing a statement is of crucial importance when applying to an academic institution, some students find themselves at a loss on how to write their admissions essay. One of the best means to get help is to look for sample statements. These sample essays allow you to get an idea how you will want your admissions essay to come out, so you can maximize your chances of getting admitted.
When you are sifting through the vast amount of sample you will have access to, be sure that you are looking for samples that will pertain to you and your personal situation. Once you find sample personal statements that you think have helpful information you can print them out and highlight any areas that you feel may help you when you set out to write your own statement. It is also a good idea to take notes as you go along.
