need support for personal statement essay



looking for help from a good writer to complete my personal statement for entry to graduate school MSW program

I have been requested to submit an academic essay with any subject of my choice in 1200 words for graduate admission from the graduate school in the US.

I think most graduate schools require an essay such as personal statement for admission.
But, academic essay means something like term paper with particular subject??
I am confused because I am from a non english spoken country.

Greetings!

Admissions essays can be a bit tricky because most people feel uncomfortable writing about themselves, especially when the point is to persuade someone how great you are! Always keep in mind your audience: the admssions committee that will be reading your essay. Think about what elements would be important to them and strike a balance between showing them the "real" you and giving them what they are looking for. That's not disingenuous, that's simply good politics.

If you'd like me to take a look at your essay after you've got a preliminary draft, I'd be happy to.

Yes, you're quite right. An academic essay is like a paper you would turn in as a class assignment, rather than an essay about yourself.

I would start by picking a subject that really interests you. Since you are applying to graduate school, a topic from your degree area is probably what the admissions people are looking for. Use the standard format of an introductory, or thesis, paragraph, then expand and explain your topic in the body of the text. Conclude with a paragraph that restates your thesis and sums up the points you have made. (These are just reminders; I'm sure you've written many papers in your academic career!)

I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you get into the school of your choice!

Thanks,
