Successful Personal Statements Workshop
- Thursday, September 26 from 4:00pm to 5:00pm (USU 312)
Graduate and professional schools often require some sort of written statement -- often called a "statement of purpose," "personal statement," or "letter of intent"-- as a part of the application. Some statements require rather specific information--for example, the applicant's intended area of study within a graduate field. Still others are quite unstructured, leaving the applicant free to address a wide range of matters. The importance of the statement varies from school to school and from field to field. In this workshop you will learn tips on writing successful personal statements.
