Personal Statement Grading Rubric

I devised an all-encompassing rubric for every element of the personal statement. It zeros in on and truly embodies my philosophy revolving around the personal statement. You can learn more about this through a series of videos on my youtube channel (link below), as well as under the video heading above. I would strongly encourage you to check these out before downloading the rubric, which can be found below. As for actually utilizing the rubric, you can certainly run through it yourself, however given our natural tendencies to be more lenient on ourselves, I would also advise you to have someone else (or really multiple people!) put your personal statement to the test with the rubric as well. I am happy to take a crack at it too! Just send me an email at
