Personal Statement Reviews

What is a Personal Statement Review?

You will submit a draft of your Personal Statement, a document you have written for admission to a graduate or professional school program,  ICT, scholarships, fellowships, or other special programs. It is assigned to a Career Coach or Pre-Professional Graduate Assistant for review, and they will provide feedback by email.

Who Can Submit a Personal Statement?

Current students, and recent alumni with active NetID.

NOTE FOR PRE-LAW STUDENTS: The Pre-Law Advising Services provides personal statement reviews for students applying to Law School. Please do not submit law school personal statements to The Career Center.
