Grade 11: College Counselling Course – Personal Statements

To aid in their college application process, 11th graders were given a lecture on personal statements by Mr. Slonim. Personal statements give each student a chance to convince college admission officers they stand out from the other applicants. Students should take this opportunity to show that they can write an interesting and captivating story while also conveying their uniqueness. Mr. Slonim provided plenty of tips and prompt examples as well as three types of personal statements. All of these were clearly listed and explained to the students with the hope of helping them better understand themselves and their writing.
