GRADUATE SCHOOL PERSONAL STATEMENTS
It's often difficult for graduate school applicants to stand out from the crowd.
Because other people applying to your program have probably done many if not most of the same things as you!
That's why it can be helpful to get some professional help writing your personal statement and/or statement of purpose.
Lauren is our personal statement / statement of purpose expert!
Lauren: I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Literature and Writing at Cal State San Marcos, and my Master’s Degree in English and Comparative Literature at San Diego State. I recently completed my first year of the PhD program in English at the University of California Riverside.
My passion for literature and writing began as a CSUSM undergraduate when I served as a research assistant and helped design a new course on the folklore and mythology in the Harry Potter series. I now serve as an English instructor for the University Writing Program at UCR. My current work as a PhD student focuses on the materiality of gender, sexuality, and identity in the punk subculture. I have been a writing consultant for over six years.
I love hanging out in San Diego during my downtime! My favorite activities are snorkeling and playing volleyball at the beach, cruising the fun hiking trails, and making my way through all of the local eateries. When I am not at the beach or in the classroom, I am usually napping and cuddling with my dog, Lego.
Lauren helps with graduate school personal statements / statements of purpose and charges $100 per hour or $450 for 5 hours.
She is based in both Carlsbad and Riverside and can also meet online.
If your kid is applying to college and wants more help than your busy high school counselor is able to give, it can be a great idea to work with a professional.
