Write-on Wednesdays: the personal statement
The recording will load in a moment.
About this livestream
The personal statement is the most important essay you’ll write during the college admissions process; it’s how you’ll communicate your personality and experiences to the admissions officers who will ultimately decide if you’re a good fit for their school.
So, on this special episode of WOW, Hale will be providing a full breakdown of everything you need to know about the personal statement, including: what admissions officers are looking for, common mistakes to avoid, and general tips for writing. He'll also go through an example of an essay or two on-air so you can see how admissions officers would critique this kind of essay.
Hale will also open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about the personal statement.
