WRITING THE PERSONAL STATEMENT -- April 17th, 1:00 - 2:00pm

Your personal statement is an important part of your scholarship or graduate school application. Yet it can be one of the most difficult things to write. Come to our workshop, and learn how to present yourself at your best, so you stand out from the crowd.

At this workshop, you will learn:

* How to interpret what the prompt in the application is asking you to write about.
* A tried and true structure that organizes your personal story.
* How to avoid sounding like a victim of difficult circumstances
* How to honestly address a less-than-perfect academic record.
* How to clearly relate your goals to the schools you are applying to.

Bonus: You will leave with handouts of examples.
