Slorg Posted December 13, 2009 Share Posted December 13, 2009 'Fit paragraphs' often go at the end of personal statements, when the applicant steps back from their past experience and talks about their future goals and why they want to be accepted to program X. My question is: Is it a major error to start talking about future goals and fit in the introductory paragraph (in addition to the end, where it will probably more concrete and related to the rest of the statement)? Obviously, my question is general and there's no right answer and it always depends... but... what are your thoughts on this? Should the personal statement writer build credibility first by talking about her past experience before she discusses her future plans? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
