I am not sure if I am posting in the right sections.
I was wondering if past applicants, current students or other members have applied for Samuel Merritt University? I am currently brainstorming what to write for my personal statement, but am having trouble with how the tone of my writing should be (professional? down to earth? funny? serious?). I am wondering if there were past applicants that can share their personal statements so I can get an idea of how others are approaching the questions? If not, general tips for personal statements are also appreciated!!!
