Personal Statement Critique


You are here

Career and Internship Services offers a free critique service for UMD students and alumni. If you would like assistance with polishing your documents please follow the instructions below.

For a personal statement, complete our FREE online Moodle workshop: Writing a Personal Statement for Graduate or Professional School. After you have completed the Moodle workshop and written a draft of your personal statement, you can have it reviewed by Career and Internship Services staff by making an appointment with a career counselor or by submitting it online.

You must attach the Review Request Form (Word) to your document. Fill out the form by clicking on the shaded fields, then either print it out and attach to your document to drop off or attach the form and your document to your e-mail.

Please allow 10 working days for a personal statement, although it may take longer at some times of the year. You will receive the critiqued personal statement by e-mail or be notified when it is ready for pick up. Documents not claimed after 30 days will be discarded.
