1st Paragraph Personal Statement

Remember that the first paragraph needs to be powerful. You want to hook the reader in--engage him/her. One important thing to remember is to speak from the heart. So many students write a series of facts which don't really allow the reader to know how you think or feel. I know it's a bit scary to allow yourself to be a bit vulnerable, but this is the most important document in your application packet. Write with enthusiasm and feeling.

I thought you might want to share these for tomorrow's class. I think the older women there would be grateful.

Thank you so much. We are in the process of isolating the ones which are appropriate for COD students.
