Personal Statement Feedback sessions 

Booking an appointment for feedback on your personal statement/statement of interest for graduate or professional school just got easier!

You may book personal statement appointments with the knowledgeable and experienced writing instructors in the LA&PS and Bethune Writing Centres.

Here’s what you need to know to make sure you go to the right Centre for you:

Are you a registered student or taking courses in the Lassonde School of Engineering, the Faculty of Science or are affiliated with Bethune College?

Are you are a registered student in any Faculty?

If you are no longer a registered student, but have graduated within the past two years, please contact Dr. Carolyn Steele directly for assistance.
