Personal Statement

This is your chance to communicate who you are and your interest in the field through stories and concrete examples.

Some applications call for a 1-2 page statement, while others require responses to a series of questions. Regardless of the exact questions asked, schools will usually want to know some variation of the questions above. Do not just write one statement and submit it to everyone.
