Graduate and Professional School Personal Statements and Statements of Purpose

If you’re reading this, you already know how important the personal statement is in gaining acceptance to graduate, medical, and law schools. A personal statement must be compelling, yet it is a notoriously difficult document to write.

As a person who worked at Duke University’s nationally recognized writing program as a writing consultant for over six years, I have coached applicants on personal statements for a wide variety of programs and schools. I have also taught university-wide workshops on writing application essays for graduate schools (primarily Master’s and Ph.D. programs) and professional schools (primarily law and medical schools).

Since starting my own business, I have continued to work with highly motivated applicants who need guidance on how best to present themselves.

Applicants who have worked with me have earned acceptance at a variety of universities and programs. A sampling of these include Harvard Law, Oxford University, Vanderbilt University, University of California–Berkeley, and University of California–San Diego School of Medicine.
