The Personal Statement
? The only thing in your application over which you have complete control, and an
excellent opportunity to shoot yourself in the foot.
? The goal is to get the reader on your side.
? Keep it short!!!!! One page max, half page better.
? First and foremost, address the rough spots or possible issues in the rest of your
application.
? Say as much as you know about your interests and what you want to do. Be totally
honest here!
? Point with pride to experiences or quali?cations which you feel make you a good
candidate, and make sure they are backed up by the appropriate letters.
? If appropriate, make speci?c comments about why you feel that department is a good
match for you.
? Take the time to double check spelling, grammar, etc.
Personal Statement ”don’t”s
? Long rambling boiler-plate about your love of physics (”When I was a small child, I
looked at ripples in a pond”).
? A ”thesis idea” which is obviously paraphrased from Scienti?c American.
? Speci?c comments about the department which are obviously the result of a quick look
at the department catalog.
? Sounding pompous.
