The personal statement is not merely a story with a beginning, middle and end, but rather, it is a story that leads to a beginning: It is the opening chapter in a new phase of a persons life. For this reason, I believe the personal statement is the most important piece of reflective writing a person does in life, and I hold the process of writing it in extremely high regard.
