Personal Essay Samples for Graduate School Application

Admissions committees deal with countless stacks of applications: faceless GRE scores and GPAs. The only way for them to differentiate among applicants with similar scores and academic backgrounds is to consult and read the essay/personal statement. Your personal statement reveals a great deal about your ability to write, to determine the purpose of the essay topic, to stick to a specified task, to sell yourself, and to explain why you are a good match to the school and program. Essentially, the essay is your opportunity to talk directly with the admissions committee, to call attention to important parts of your application that might otherwise be overlooked, and to explain any discrepancies or potentially negative aspects of your application. It's your chance to help the admissions committee see you as a person instead of a grade point average and standardized test scores.
