Your Community Service projects should focus on supporting and improving your community, and building relationships with its residents. When choosing a project, think about what interests you and what qualities, abilities and skills you can put to use in your community. Not all types of volunteering count as Department of State community service. The difference is that community service should benefit a larger group of people. Community service is defined as non-paid volunteer work with a non-profit agency.

7. University California Personal Statement Prompts

The U.C. application has two personal statement prompts:
  1. Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
  2. Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?
 
Writing a Successful Statement

Composing a personal statement can be intimidating, so we encourage you to begin well before the deadline in order to take pressure off yourself and improve the quality of the final draft. Read the application instructions carefully. Make a list of ideas. Then write a first attempt, leave it for a day or two, and return to make revisions. Read each draft aloud to catch misspellings or awkward or inappropriate wording. When you prepare your final draft, correct grammar and spelling.

We recommend creating the personal statement in a word processing program, then pasting it into the application. Use the Word Count feature to be sure that you are writing the appropriate length.

Do:
  • Write it yourself.
  • Write it about yourself.
  • Provide any relevant information about yourself that you don’t think is captured elsewhere in the application.
  • Write about experiences, accomplishments, etc. that occurred during or after high school.
  • Provide specific examples of your accomplishments or activities in which you’ve participated.
  • Keep your statement focused.
  • Have your statement checked by a teacher, counselor or other adviser for spelling, grammar and clarity.
