To read greatly into your university’s selection criteria and craft your personal statement in a way that embodies the intersection between your identity and your person, and the values the institution searches for.

 

Looking back, what would you have done differently during your time at school to better prepare for university?

Whilst I am most satisfied with the outcome of my applications, I would advise anyone and everyone to keep their options open! The last two years of your high school journey are more powerful than you may think, in prompting personal growth and change in aspirations. Keep your options open in terms of courses and geographical locations.
