    I just googled "personal statement examples" and found a bunch of sites that showed example essays. If you're still in undergrad the pre-professional office at your school may also be able to give you some direction. Good luck! I HATED the personal statement part!

    Be ORIGINAL. Avoid clich├ęs. Make yourself stand out amongst the thousands of other applicants.

  4. I've only applied to 3 schools but my essay ?s were pretty straightforward. They tell you what to write about but YES, DO MAKE YOURSELF STAND OUT.
