High School --> Personal Statement

Your Personal Statement

A personal statement, or a statement of purpose, is a college admissions essay about YOU! It is what's going to set you apart from the other applicants.  It is not enough to mention your educational and career goals.  You need to tell a story of the events or experiences in your life that inspired you to pursue a college education. We highly recommend that you have your friends and teachers to read your essay and give you their feedback.  In this concise essay, you should highlight your academic and extra curricular activities as well as any important roles you play at home.
