BattlePope Posted February 10, 2014 Share Posted February 10, 2014 Hi guys, How important is the length of the personal statement? From what I've read, most guides have said to keep it to about a page. I talked to my prospective advisor though and he mentioned that I should talk about what I have done and what I hope to do. This makes me feel that this personal statement is more of a statement of purpose, which (from what I've read) are generally longer in length. What do you guys think? I think I'll try to keep it to at most 1,000 words but was curious what you guys thought. Is that still too long for a personal statement (that actually seems more like a SOP)? Thanks for the help!
