Putting your mark on a personal statement
Along with being an important part of the graduate school application process, the personal statement allows students to present themselves as individuals and gives the department a window into their personality.
Often personal statements are one of the most overlooked or dreaded parts of an application to graduate school. The statement of interest is your opportunity to introduce yourself to professors in your prospective department.
In addition ask yourself questions such as; what are your goals?; which professors seem best suited to guide you?; what is your approach to studying?
The Binghamton University Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development offers tips on how to strike an appropriate balance of personal style and informal conversation in a personal statement.
