This section is where you can write a brief statement expressing why you would like to be considered for the programs you are applying to.
- Do not exceed the maximum length: As you type, you can see how many characters are still available. Characters include spaces, carriage returns, and punctuation. You cannot save your statement if it exceeds the character limit.
- Use your own words: Don't plagiarize.
- Use simple formatting: Formatting such as tabs, italics, multiple spaces, etc., will not be saved. To delineate paragraphs, type a double return between each paragraph.
Be sure to read over your statement several times to catch any spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc., errors before submitting. Once you submit your application, you can't edit your statement. If you find an error after submission that you believe could have major effects on your application, we recommend sending a corrected copy directly to the programs you applied to.
