Personal Statement Workshop: How to Get From Brainstorming to Final Draft
How long would it take to tell a stranger the story of your life? With your personal statement, you will have just 650 words to capture the essence of your being,—your passion, your past, and your future goals.

It's a daunting mission made even more intimidating by the admissions officers who will be reading it, but you don't need to dread the personal statement. In fact, with a little work and planning, you can conquer your essay and become a masterful writer.

Whether you're still in the brainstorming phase or already revising, we're here to help! We're hosting a free webinar—"Personal Statement Workshop: How to Get From Brainstorming to Final Draft."

This presentation will cover:
⭐ Inside the Admissions Office: How Applications Are Evaluated
⭐ The Personal Statement: Key Facts and Strategy
⭐ From First Draft to Finalization: Essay Structure and Writing Strategies
⭐ Personal Statement in Action: Real Student Case Studies

Jennifer Deren
Former Admissions Reader @Williams College
I’m Jenny Deren, a Former Admissions Officer and Graduate Coach based in Central Massachusetts. After graduating summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with an A.B. in English, I completed a Ph.D. in English from Tufts University. I have ten years of experience teaching college-level writing and literature at Tufts, Providence College, and the College of the Holy Cross. As an Admissions Reader at Williams College, I read hundreds of college applications, gaining insight into the admissions process and the characteristics of clear, compelling applications. I am thrilled to combine my skills as a writing instructor with my admissions experience to help students identify and articulate their passions, craft engaging profiles, and prepare for their collegiate futures. My favorite part of teaching has always been working one-on-one with my students to articulate their ideas, hone their writing skills, and explore their academic interests.
