Hi,

I started admission for MBA and wondering about format of the Personal statement.
Would you be so kind and explain a little how it should look.
What is preferred format and such things.
I have doubt which one is better.

Hey man,
Your question is a liiiiittle bit too general maybe, cause normally, even for Personal Statements, each school will have their own instructions about what sort of things you should write inside. So the first and most important thing is to follow whatever instructions those are.

In general though, a Personal Statement will include:
3. Why you want to apply to this degree
4. Why you want to apply to this specific school.

Once again though, dude, any EXPLICIT instructions on the school's pages come first.

Hi,
thanks for replay. I see that you didn't understand me well.
My intention was to get information about paper format...
How it should be written as a business letter, recommendation letter, Letter of intention, Essay , etc.
When you print it and look in it, what admission manager want to see.
I don't mean what it should be written in it.
I know that all mention things have usually used format but I don't know preferred one for personal statement.

Darko, I see...
I thing it is closest in nature to in my opinion is an Essay that has to deal with why you are applying and why to the school. So an essay format is the most appropriate (unless of course you have specific instructions otherwise)

Best,
JF
