Writing a personal statement can be tough. How do you begin? What if you don’t understand the prompt question? What if there are no prompt questions?

Our highly-interactive workshop introduces students to writing a personal statement for their application to a graduate or professional school, Teach for America or any other program which requires at Personal Statement. We will cover the key points to consider and steps in the process. We will teach you strategies to help you understand the prompt questions, organize your ideas, and draft a compelling statement that will help you stand out from other applicants.
