Personal Statement Example

In business school, personal essays are more often comprised of a series of several essays in which the applicant responds to questions posed by the graduate program. In this particular essay, the author wants to pursue the IT division of business, and uses her experiences of her father’s business as a corner stone for her interests. I like this essay because it combines a demonstration of her skill set with a background of her family’s involvement in business. I also really enjoy the author’s second essay, in which she details her struggles with dermatitis. As she puts it, the pain of having dermatitis was nowhere near comparable to the emotional scars she suffered as a result of it. The author describes her social isolation from her classmates, and the unrelenting support her parents gave her. In the end, she overcame her emotional/physical scars and gained confidence in taking over leadership positions in school. These two essays are especially impactful because it combines the author’s personal struggles with her resilience to rise above and achieve her goals.
