Your personal statement is a critical component of your college application. But why is this so? You have your grades and possibly your SAT/ACT/Subject Tests. Shouldn’t they tell the full story? Well….. perhaps in India, China or Japan where objective measures determine your ascent and collegiate trajectory. In America, colleges use a holistic approach to admissions. In other words, they look at the whole applicant. Not just the students academics, but their growth and potential, their primary interests and activities, their character, values and likely contributions. Universities want to get to know you, the candidate, in a deep and personal way. The personal statement is one way to accomplish this. So let’s dive in!
