GW Application
« on: October 03, 2008, 06:18:26 AM »
The GW application recently became available, and upon filling out the application, I noticed that they request a personal statement of 500 words or less. Does anyone have any advice in regards to what to write about/ how to effectively sell yourself in 2 paragraphs?

Well... you can take my approach: ignore that request and turn in the same personal statement you sent to every other school.

Just an idea.

Isn't 500 words about 2 pages double spaced?

I think it's roughly one page, maybe a little over.


But I just submitted mine as 1 1/2 pages.  :P
