Title: Personal Statement Tips And Tricks

Personal Statement Tips And Tricks
A personal statement is a brief reflective essay
you create to show the admissions committee
youre the best fit for the program or course
youre applying for.
A personal statement is a great chance for you to
distinguish yourself from the many other
applicants. Besides, this piece of writing can
leave a really good impression on the admissions
officers and make them invite you for an
interview or accept immediately.
Use the following tips and tricks as well as
these nursing personal statement exampleswhich
will help you to compose an outstanding paper.
  • Keep in mind it is a personal statement
  • Youre supposed to write about yourself, why you
    are the perfect candidate for the program, what
    your experiences are, what skills and strengths
    make you the best match, and what so special
    about you.

  • Clarify why you want to study the program so much
  • Show how motivated and passionate you are about
    studying on this course. Also, explain how youve
    developed an interest in this field of study and
    what youve done to pursue it. Check these
    psychology personal statement examples to get an

  • Prove that youre the best fit
  • Tell the admissions committee youve researched
    and know everything about the program, its
    subjects, and requirements. Show that youre
    completely ready for studying and take on any

  • Give examples
  • Write about relevant work experience,
    volunteering, summers schools, competitions,
    educational programs, etc. so everyone can see
    how proactive you are. Use these engineering
    personal statement examples if you need extra

  • Write about relevant skills
  • Find out which skills a profession requires and
    which you possess. Dont just list them, but give
    examples where you demonstrated them (like you
    were a captain of a team on a math competition
    and presented excellent leadership skills which
    your chosen profession needs). Dont forget to
    check these best business management personal
    statement examples.

  • Tell what your long-term goal is
  • Dont even think about saying something like I
    want to be a journalist. Be more specific,
    creative, and imaginative. Show your
    individuality, which future path you have in mind
    and how this program can help you to make your
    dream come true.

  • No rushing
  • Do not expect to finish personal statement
    writing within a few hours. It can take a few
    days, for some applicants, even weeks. So, take
    your time and make breaks to feel relaxed and
    look at your written piece from a fresh

  • Use thesaurus
  • It sounds more elegant when you use presume
    instead of think or achieve instead of do
    like in this personal statement law school
    example. So, use the thesaurus but be very
    careful a statement with too many fancy words
    will be quite a challenge to read.

  • Provide answers to all questions
  • Youre probably applying for more than one
    course, and each of them has different questions
    they request to answer in a personal statement.
    So, read them carefully and submit a paper with
    requested answers to each school.

  • Include only 2-4 topics in your statement
  • Dont try to contain your whole life on a single
    paper. Delete all unnecessary details and focus
    on your professionalism, relevant skills, great
    motivation and ability to study hard in your
    chosen field.

  • Be honest
  • Dont lie that youre fluent in Chinese when you
    actually can say only a few phrases. Sooner or
    later the truth will come out. You dont want to
    make such an impression of being a liar on the
    assessing committee.

  • Focus on your strengths
  • Be positive and dont talk about your weaknesses.
    However, you can say how you overcame it and
    become a person you are now. But its for the
    best if you stick to your strengths and be
    careful with negative statements like in this
    personal statement example medical school.

  • Avoid plagiarism
  • It is so easy to check a paper for plagiarism
    using modern technologies. If you dont want to
    make an impression of a person who copies someone
    elses writing and cant come up with anything
    original, do not plagiarize.

  • Ask someone to proofread your paper
  • The more people check your PS for errors, the
    more feedback you will receive, and thus, the
    better quality your paper will have. Check this
    personal statement example for business
    management and be successful!

  • Read your written piece aloud
  • If you want to make sure your personal statement
    is comprehensive, read it out loud to your
    friends or family. Youll be able to hear some
    hard-to-understand or vague phrases and make them
    right. Find even more information on the topic in
    this Google book.
