Reviewing your Graduate School personal statement _ Skip this stage and you are heading for rejection. Very few people write perfectly the first time and if you run out of time to do this stage, then you are leaving your application short.
The first step in preparing your Graduate School personal statement _ Take the time to research and understand the doctrine and mission of the school, this will be intrinsically reflected in your writing and prove you are addressing your statement to this particular School.

Understanding the audience for your statement will help you to develop compelling content that grabs their attention.
