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.
