We Are The Universitards
I am stuck in a bit of a bind. I am a community college student with about a 3.7 GPA, I am also one of the first people in my family to actually go beyond just community college. I am very active in clubs at school, I do a lot of volunteering work, etc. |
I am going to try and transfer to a UC school here in Southern CA – the deadline is Nov 30.
I have most of the paper work for my requirements and transfer in order, but I am having a major problem getting any help or direction on my personal statement.
At this point I can either transfer as a History or Political Science major, I have enough units and requirements for both. The thing is that I have been trying to get some direction from counselors at school, but the community college that I go to pretty much sucks. Nobody is really helping me besides telling me to “answer the question” and “write about yourself” – our school used to have a transfer center, but it was shut down due to budgetary reasons.
So I am here asking you all for some help. Would any of you know of any good sites regarding personal statement samples for History and Political science majors seeking admission to a UC school – or any type of four year university?
I really don’t want to copy anyone’s work, I just need to read something else and see what they are actually looking for, what’s going to give me that edge? I have absolutely no direction.
Thanks a lot for the help
