    Personal statement/essay

    Advertisements



    I read on the website that it's required, however it doesn't say how long, or anything specific about it. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    I think it's like 500 words... it says on the online application.

    Make it short and interesting. Tell a good story. Make it clear that you know what you're getting into (if you do), and talk about how you embrace people of all kinds.

    I'm fairly certain it's 300 words

    Yup I applied in December and it's definitely 300 words. Which was like one page double spaced I think.
