Personal Statements

There are many reasons to write a personal statement: scholarships, graduate school, medical school, Health Science Review Committee, and more. Even if you're an excellent writer, you may need some coaching in how to write an effective personal statement. Here's a list of resources available to you:

 

In-Person Support:
The Peer Writing Tutors and Anne Marie Smith, Writing Learning Specialist, are available to help students with every step of writing a personal statement. We can help you get started and support you through the final draft. Peer Writing Tutors are available from 5-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday evenings. To sign up for an appointment with Ms. Smith, please go to the Academic and Career Enrichment (ACE) Center in Goodwin 214.
