I just feel like I haven't got much to say! I don't want to write about all the books I've read because I know admissions roll their eyes a bit at this, as for all they know you could have just read the blurb! I'm going to do some charity work this summer with asylum seekers and maybe spend a day in a buddhist town trying to adapt to their lifestyle but has anyone else got any tips please? My unis are competitive so I'm worried about not having enough to say!
Anyone got any tips for an Anthropology personal statement? Watch

"I'm a people person" would be a good start. No, sorry, I'll just leave now.

Apparently they like it if you talk briefly about a couple of books you've read, but then state what they revealed to you about humanity and add in your own opinion about them.
For example, if you read a book about young people in Tonga, you may be able to write a bit about what that brought up in your own surroundings and how it furthered your passion for anthropology in everyday life.
If you do extra curriculars, only put them in if they relate to the topic. And if you have any volunteer work or work experience related to anthropology (e.g. Amnesty volunteering, archaeological digs), I've heard that it is highly valued, because it shows that you 'live and breathe anthropology'.
