How long should my personal statement be?

You will submit your personal statement via the Essay Questionnaire in the online application. There are three questions to answer, and a prompt at the beginning of the statement section that requires 4-7 sentences per section, so be sure to stay within that range. Of course, it can be easy to stretch a sentence pretty far, but we always recommend to keep your responses concise and to the point. There is no reason to add fluff and drag it out. Each section should be no more than 7 sentences.
