This workshop introduces students to the process of writing a competent personal statement for graduate school. This workshop will show how personal statement content, format and structure must be established. Personal statements are an important part of any graduate school application that allows the student to stand out amongst the competition. Many graduate schools are now emphasizing the importance of a well-written personal statement to accompany a student’s test scores and undergraduate GPA. Graduate school admission committees are admitting students who are well rounded in all areas.
