When you are trying to get into a university, a grad school, or even a specialty school, more times than not a personal statement is required. The first thing that you need to do before you begin to write your personal statement is to write down all of your thoughts. After that is done you can begin to edit your work. You may want to believe that your first thoughts are gold, but in order to write a successful personal statement you must edit it often.
Many grad programs at various universities and specialty schools will require you to write a personal statement in order for you to apply to the school and if you are not sure what to write then you need to know where to look so that you can figure it out. Because your personal statement will weigh heavily on whether or not you get accepted into the school of your dreams, you want to make sure that you write an admission essay that really wows those who will read it.
