[h2]How to write your personal statement/essay[/h2]
A personal statement is extremely important when it comes to getting admitted into the university of your choice. Usually students make the mistake of taking these lightly and thinking of them as just another formality not realizing that reading this is what actually helps the reader determine whether or not he/she would like to admit you into a university that you would like to get into. Think of it this way: thousands of students, like you, apply to these colleges and most of them have stellar academic records, recommendations from some of the most well-known companies in the world and they may have interned in some of the best companies out there, too.
Someone who reads your personal essay would be thinking about what it is that sets you apart from all the other applicants that have academic records similar to yours. They would also be looking at how you have dealt with certain circumstances in your life to judge how you would be able to handle and perform in college. Your personal statement is not a letter of justification as to why you applied to a college nor is it something that you should use to do this.
Tell the college something about yourself so that they get an idea as to why you should be admitted into the college. Your personal statement has more to do with who you are because it helps show who you are as a person. That is why it is referred to as a “personal” statement. Make your essay as personal as possible and make sure that it is a unique one. Do not make the mistake of writing on a topic just because someone you know did the same and got into a college. Your essay needs to be unique. The more you show the reader a personal side to yourself, the more he/she would get to know you on a personal level and that is what would help them determine whether or not they want to admit you into the college.
Anyone can write and send in a formal essay that has nothing to do with them but that is not what the reader wants to read. The essay must be subjective- no matter what the topic may be. It is a concise essay allowing your reader to connect with you at a deeper and more personal level.
