Personal Statement

Your personal statement is your primary college essay -- it is your introductory story to each of the colleges on your list, typically in 650 words or less. This long-form essay is how you’ll convey to the admissions representative who you are. Remember, you aren’t writing a complete autobiography. Instead, you are giving the admissions committee a thoughtful glimpse into one experience that inspires you and brings meaning to your life.
