Seniors: What's next for you? Have a job? Going to grad school? Still looking? Let us know by May 15th, and get entered into a drawing for UMass apparel from the University Store.
Graduate and professional schools often require some sort of written statement, often called a “statement of purpose,” “personal statement,” or “letter of intent,” as a part of the application. Some statements require specific information; for example, the applicant’s intended area of study within a graduate field. Others are quite unstructured, giving the applicant the freedom to address a wide range of matters.
How you structure your personal statement can make the difference.
