Personal Statements

The Writing Center is a great resource for the students preparing personal statements for grad school applications.
Before going in to the Writing Center to get help be sure to workshop your personal statement with your advisor or other professors. Writing Center tutors can help you with stylistic and structural inssues, but your professors will be able to give input about what the graduate schools/programs are looking for. Visit the Writing Center's web site to schedule an appointment and find out more about how they can help you.
Also in our Career Library we have several books on writing personal statements that can be checked out for up to 2 weeks.
If you are applying for a health related graduate program, Heather Banks, Health Professions Coordinator, will also look over your personal statements. Send them to her email at healthprofessions@gustavus.edu.
