Number of pages for personal statement

  1. I'm in the process for applying to a ABSN program and it's been over a decade since I last applied to college and I'm pretty nervous.

    So, I was wondering, how many pages are considered standard for a personal statement? 3 pages ... more or less? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. :wink2:

    The requirements for personal statements vary greatly by school and even by program within schools. It is essential that you follow the guideline given by your program, especially when you consider that some poor human being has to sit there and read through hundreds of these essays. My program asked for NO MORE THAN 2 double spaced typed pages.

    Whatever you do, don't make it too long. If you submit a resume, then you really don't need to rehash your resume in narrative form. Good luck
