Personal Statement Length Tips

  1. 1. www.PersonalStatementLength.com 10 Tips for Maintaining Good Personal Statement Length While student test scores and grades are top factors for most decisions of the admissions committee, did you know that your application essay and its proper format, style, content and personal statement length also matter? Today, let’s talk about the top 10 pointers in keeping it to the right length, as required by a specific institution or school. Tips in Following Personal Statement Length Requirements 1.Know that a college or university requires at least an essay, some two and some even three. There are also some that requires main essays and an optional essay. Confirm the length for each type of personal statement or essay before getting started. 2.WATCH OUT! Wordiness comes in many names—redundancy, repetition, deadwood, fluff and filler. Whatever you may want to call it, wordiness does not have a place in an essay and so with your chances to winning an admission. Learn how to ‘cut, cut and cut, when needed.’ 3.Embrace the requirements and stick to them. Some students try to impress the committee with a longer essay, but less is actually more. They are not after a novel-like personal statement, but a winning piece that is short yet concise and contains no fillers. 4.See to it that you don’t discuss what you already did in the common application so that you can come up with a meaty essay that comes with just the right personal statement word limit. 5.Frame your thought. Some students try to juggle between topics in their college essays and tend to jump from one to another, not noticing that they’re weakening instead of strengthening their main story. Again, frame your thought and stick with one topic. In this
  2. 2. www.PersonalStatementLength.com way, you will be able to write a winning essay that has its main point discussed in a clear and succinct manner. 6.Think and re-think. For instance, you don’t need to answer the prompt right away, but you need to first brainstorm and jot down some ideas, until you can narrow down to a specific one to discuss. This brings us back to #5 “thought framing.” Every prompt or question is unique and so each of your answer should be. You don’t have to restate what you already did in one question to the next, especially for related or similarly close questions or topics. 7.Use a straightforward approach to keep the personal statement word limit. What this means is that you can make use of the personal essay format, which is composed of the introduction, body and conclusion. This is very simple yet very easy to follow. By using it, you also have the chance to stick with one topic and stick with it from the start to the end with paragraphs that glue well with each other. You can limit your essay to five paragraphs at a minimum. 8.Be yourself. Some students fail at keeping it to the word count because they try not only to impress but to highlight so many things in their essay, trying to prove how great they are and sometimes trying to imitate someone else. Remember, your personal statement is about you and not about somebody you admire or perhaps not about somebody who had excelled in the study. 9.Read about the specific tips of the college when writing an application essay so that you can tailor your personal statement to the needs, not only with the length but also to the format and content. Many of these universities look for specific characteristics from applicants and some include leadership, creative thinking skills and innovative skills, among others.
  3. 3. www.PersonalStatementLength.com 10.Learn of the length to submit! This is very important. Show that you know how to follow instructions to demonstrate you are reliable and that you know how to deliver as per requirements. Why Stick with Personal Statement Restrictions Good applicants know how to follow directions. So if the admissions require a 2-page essay, don’t submit a 3-page essay or more. It’s so simple yet it is a major factor that they’re looking into when deciding who to accept and who not to accept. Good ones also know how to proofread, edit and cut their essays to the right personal statement word count. If you detect any pointless statements or perhaps fillers in your piece, cut them. Cut and cut until perfection! Final word: Know yourself and keep it real. In the process, you will be able to reveal who you are without WORDINESS in your college essay. Use these top tips to keep personal statement length today! ! ! ! !
