Personal Statement Consultations
for UMN International Students
Are you an undergraduate international student (F-1 or J-1 visa) preparing an application for a graduate or professional school program?
The Personal Statement is an important part of the application process!
We have two options for you to participate:
Meet with a Personal Statement Consultant virtually to have yours reviewed in a consultation appointment. Live Appointments are 30 minutes on Zoom, and available by making an appointment in Google Calendar.
Submit your Personal Statement to receive a recorded video of feedback and comments that you can view on your own time.
[Personal Statement Consultations are now closed for the 2021-2022 year. We encourage you to visit UMN Student Writing Support, UMN Student English Language Support, or your Career Services office through your college.]
Our consultants are current graduate students, and staff who work in UMN Career Services. They can answer your questions about graduate/professional school. They will work with you to locate meaningful life experiences and turn them to a compelling story about yourself in clear, concise words that flow.
Email Jane at email@example.com if you have any questions about Personal Statement Consultations.
All current UMN international undergraduate students are welcome to participate in Personal Statement Consultations.
