UC Personal Statement Essay

All Juniors must complete a draft of the UC Personal Statement essay in May 2015. Students will revise these for their College Applications in the Fall.

The Prompts:

  1. Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
  2. Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?
  3. Transfer Prompt: What is your intended major? Discuss how your interest in the subject developed and describe any experience you have had in the field — such as volunteer work, internships and employment, participation in student organizations and activities — and what you have gained from your involvement.

Here are some helpful resources for writing your UC Personal Statement.

Don’t procrastinate! The key is to revise, revise, revise…
