webbks Posted July 17, 2017 Share Posted July 17, 2017 (edited) Hey everyone! One thing that I see emphasized regarding personal statements for graduate school is standing out, and being unique. There is one event that I think was the most influential in my life academically, professionally, and personally, so I would love to write about it. However, I'm not sure if it's unique enough to put in an application! I studied abroad for one year in Rome, Italy, and was able to grow as a historian, academic, and person during this time. Studying abroad is pretty common, so would this even stand out to admissions counselors? TIA! Edited July 17, 2017 by webbks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
