What is a personal essay? This type of essay has a purpose of revealing the personality of the applicant for a graduate education in a certain field of study.

This essay is supposed to present the applicant’s personality to people who have never met him and that is the reason it is very important to be objective in order to make the people reading the essay understand that the applicant by no means is exaggerating.
