Personalize Your Grad School Essays: Be a person not just an application! And other helpful tips for applying to graduate schoolAuthor: Michelle Hubbard Category: Client Books, Education
Many years ago, the admissions process included an interview with nearly every applicant. Now, that is not the case. Your best chance at being seen as a unique and worthy graduate school applicant lies in the only parts of the application YOU control—your personal essay, resume, and addendum. There are a lot of resources for you that cover this same information. Many will have completely different approaches and recommendations, and I encourage you to follow the guidance that fits and feels best for you. I DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT FOLLOWING MY APPROACH WILL NET YOU AN ACCEPTANCE TO ANY PROGRAM OR SCHOOL. However, I do believe it will give you a stronger application and an easier experience than if you go through the application process all by yourself.
