    Every college is different, so each personal statement should be different. Many students try to get away with having a universal essay but admissions departments will notice.
    “Do research to give concrete reasons why you’re interested in particular program,” Carpenter said. “Speak with a faculty member that you’re interested in working with or doing research for and mention that in your statement. It would also be beneficial to say what classes you’ve taken that were relevant to the field of study.” Or another way you may use is to write as you see it and let somebody proofread it.
