Our special ‘Writing Personal Statements’ workshop has been rescheduled for Monday, March 27th from 12:45 to 1:45 PM in Sackler 507.  Writing is hard; writing about yourself can be even harder.  If you are preparing a personal statement for your medical school or other application, then this workshop is for you.

Christine Smith, MS, RD, the writing consultant at our library, adjunct lecturer at the Friedman School and former Senior Editor of the Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter, will provide advice on writing personal statements and her top writing tips.  We will also share books available at the library on application writing and interviewing.
