- Think of your Personal Statement as the voice of your application - this is the opportunity to let the committee hear from you!
- When crafting your Personal Statement, it may be beneficial to consider your past, present, and future.
- Past: What have your educational and work experiences been thus far? What has led you to this point in your life?
- Present: Why are you applying to graduate school? Why are you choosing this institution? Why are you choosing this program?
- Future: What are your career goals? How will this degree help you to attain them?
- If you are applying to a Ph.D. program, you might want to discuss your research interests and how they align with the work of the current faculty.
- Your statement should be roughly one to two pages, double-spaced, 12 point font.
Additional Requirements for International Applicants

**Please note that you are required to UPLOAD your supporting documents rather than mailing or faxing them. Uploading your documents saves you time, effort, and the expense of mailing documents to us during the initial processing and review of your application. It avoids delays normally incurred in the processing of paper documentation, allows you to associate your documents with the correct application and requirement, and assures you that your documents have been received. It can also speed up the review of your application so that you can obtain an admission decision sooner.
Do NOT mail or fax documents required in support of your application to be admitted. All documents must be uploaded.
