Your Personal Statement Checklist
Show Notes

Writing a compelling personal statement is HARD! How do you convey the unique thread among your life experiences, and convert years' worth of feelings and learnings into something concrete?

We've each written and edited dozens and dozens of personal statements - for college, fellowships, scholarships, and graduate programs. We share our tips for choosing which stories to showcase, organizing the stories into a compelling narrative, editing your personal statement, and getting helpful feedback.
