Personal statement review
Our personal statement review service is designed for applicants who are in the final stages of writing their personal statements and are looking for additional feedback.
For tips on what makes a great personal statement, please review this handout and develop your personal statement according to the general guidelines.
If you are having challenges formulating your ideas for a personal statement, please feel free to make an advising appointment with the pre-law advisors or the USC Writing Center (for current USC students only).
This review process is intended for FINAL DRAFTS. Therefore, before submitting your personal statement, please proofread your personal statement for grammar and content. The pre-law advising team will return it to you within 5 business days with constructive feedback.
Due to high volume, we are able to accept one submission at a time. If you submit more than one document, we will select the first one received.
NOTE: We will not be doing personal statement reviews between December 1- January 5, 2024.
Receive a resume review through VMock Smart Resume – AI software tailored specifically for USC students. Enjoy targeted, personalized guidance designed to help you improve your resume.
