Application advice: Your personal statement is the most important document in your application!!!! Have people read it before sending it off (maybe take it to the Debby Ellis writing center). The next most important documents are the letters of recommendation. If you want a good one, give the professor a copy of your personal statement (even in rough form), an informal resume (listing clubs you are involved in, your GPA, etc.), and any other helpful information.
