That’s right, the unique, smart, stand out story of how you got to be who you are. And, more specifically, how you’re going to tell it in such a way that your desired programs will thrust open those ivy covered doors, unfurl a red carpet and welcome you with a blast of trumpets. (You are, apparently, applying to become a Medievalist).
If you’re like most students, telling the story of you just feels, well, weird. Even if you consider yourself to be a great writer, those words clam up when it comes to talking about yourself. Or, maybe they come flooding out, but they refuse to order themselves into neat little paragraphs with tight little threads. What to do?
