Personal Statement Review

A personal statement is a requirement for most professional schools. Professional schools are often looking for students to discuss their personal motivation to enter the desired field of study. It is never too early to think about your personal statement. Workshops are offered during the spring semester to assist students with the process of idea formulation and writing. We also have the Personal Statement workshop online  in webinar format.

We are currently experiencing higher than usual demand for personal statement reviews. This is great and pre-health advisors are excited to review your personal statement! Between May 26 - August 15, please expect it to take a minimum of two weeks and up to three weeks to receive a response to your personal statement.
