Writing a Personal Statement

Most graduate programs require you to submit a personal statement or letter of intent as part of your application package.  The purpose of this document is to present information about you as an applicant that can't be determined by other documents in the application.  This is where you will explain your reasons for pursuing a graduate degree, your area of interest, and why you feel you are a good fit for this particular institution.
