Your personal statements should show us your unique experiences, strengths, potential, goals and aspirations. Your goal should be to give us a strong sense of who you are, what you want to do and who you want to be.
Your personal statements should be well-written and well-organized. We recommend that you:
• Write about something different in each personal statement.
• Draft and revise your personal statements in a separate document first. Be sure to then proofread for spelling, grammar, and punctuation, and compare the length of your responses to the word count ranges stated below.
• Review one final time before pasting the text into your application.
