The Transfer Application Personal Statement provides you with an opportunity to outline your reasons for seeking to transfer and the objectives that you hope to achieve by changing schools.
- While you do not need to know exactly what your major will be when applying to Dartmouth, you should use your Personal Statement to help us understand how changing schools will further your academic or career goals.
- The Admissions Committee will pay attention to the quality of the writing in your personal statement, but we will also look to hear your "voice" and to learn something about you.
- Write in a style that is comfortable for you - don't try to be something that you're not (If you're funny and people praise your wonderful sense of humor, that's great. If not, this might not be the place to start trying to be funny.)
- Please don't forget to proof-read!
