Education Abroad

Postby FlanAl » Wed Aug 11, 2010 1:54 pm

I know there are some other Americans who did their entire undergraduate in the UK or elsewhere. I'm wondering if anyone decided to make this kind of the focus of their personal statement. I didn't save african whale babies or anything like that. I'm pretty much just your average white applicant except that I went to school in a different country and I'm not sure if I should focus on that or not.

Thanks for any advice

African whale babies need to be saved?

It's your PS, focus on what's important to you. In the mean time, if you look in the PS samples, you'll find PS's that are similar in focus to what you've mentioned. That might help.

I'm struggling with this very same issue. If possible, I'm tempted to write my personal statement on something else (if I can think of anything) and submit a DS about my education abroad, how it's shaped me and why I think it'll contribute to the class.

Let me know what you decide to do, as I'm pretty conflicted too!
