We ask for a personal statement because we want to get a sense of who you are in your own words beyond what we can infer from your resume/CV. We want to see how your experiences, successes, and failures have shaped how you see the world, what ideas you have and what you want to do. Name an issue or two, big or small, in the world that is important to you. In what way could you address this problem or create awareness about it? If you could revisit a previous project of yours again, how would you do it differently?
You can write about anything that shows us what ideas you have and what you want to do. Don't be afraid to take some chances. Please note that you do not need to address all of the prompts above.
Length: Please limit your statement to 1,000 words or 4 pages double spaced.
