Personal Statement Advice


JHF
Hello!

I'm looking at LLMs in the US, and would like to make a start on applications over the next couple of weeks, and hopefully, submit them over the Christmas break.

Is anyone able to offer advice on personal statements? How can they be best approached? Would anyone be willing to send me theirs (if they have already started the course).

Thanks.

They should not be longer than 500/700 words. Talk about you. You should consider that it's kind of a "presentation", a way of selling your profile to the universities. Try to think about what makes you stand out, to be unique in comparison to others and relate that to the reasons that took you to pursue an LLM.
