If you’re planning to apply for graduate school, chances are you’ll be asked to write one or several essays as part of your application. 

In our recent workshop, we broke down the basics on what these essays are and how to get started on yours.

We answered questions such as:

  • What is the difference between a personal statement and a statement of purpose?
  • How do I determine what type of essay a graduate program may expect me to write?
  • How can I get started with the writing process?
