Dear Dr. Edinger,

I submitted my application to the University of XXXX and just received notice that I was accepted.  I am very excited about it.  I would like to thank you for your help writing my personal statement.  I am sure it made a big difference in my application package.  Writing about myself is a very painful process.  Your help made everything so much easier.  Thank goodness I found you! 

Sample 300 Word Essay: Interests in Graduate Program

Since my father is Nigerian, I think of myself as African as well and tend to identify with African issues and concerns. I am as well traveled as I am well read, having visited most of Western Europe as well as Africa and part of Asia. My mother, however, is African-American and this has given me a solid sense of identity and rootedness in the African-American community in Eastern XXXX, since I have always lived in XXXX City. XXXX University if my first choice for graduate school because I very much want to earn my MSW as part of a local academic community that has a special concern for issues as they play out on a local level. Over the course of the last few years serving as a social worker, I have been witness, for example, to many changes in insurance policy that have had a profound effect on patients and their families and I want to prepare myself to work with these kinds of issues at the local level. I am concerned in particular with the way in which, at least as I understand it, many patients are being discharged into the community from hospitals and other treatment centers in XXXX, as in many other areas of the country, even though they are in need of further assistance yet have no family willing or able to care for them. Since XXXX City is my home, this is where I would like to attend graduate school and also were I look forward to enhancing my capacity for serving as a highly effective advocate for my patients.

Sample MSW Application Statement 1st Paragraph

A 43 year old African-American woman, I now have the maturity that comes along with several decades of adulthood, a search for my own identity through participation in social causes, and a search for justice that has long eluded the African-American community. My own research and that to which I seek to dedicate the balance of my life in both study and practice, concerns women in particular, especially since mothers are generally the glue that binds families of color together. I ask for admission to your distinguished Master’s Degree Program in Social Work at XXXX University because I see it as the optimal springboard upon which I might best go about realizing my long term dream. I hope to one day create and manage a home for women who are being released from prison. In this home each woman would be given the opportunity to complete a High School Diploma and be taught a vocation or trade; along with attending AA/NA meetings and rebuilding a healthy relationship with their families. Women being released from prison tend to be women of color and tend to be substance abusers; thus, I look forward to doing research along these lines in your program, how to best go about helping women of color—in light of the many special issues that they face—by a focus that includes treating their substance abuse issues.
