必威betway下载U of Washington的admission officer指出，他们会把申请者分成四等："Admit with guaranteed
必威betway下载funding, Admit with potential funding, Tabled (a sort of admissions purgatory),
and Reject." It is in the case of "Tabled" and "Admit with potential funding"
applications, the admissions officer reports, that the personal statement can
必威betway下载make a real difference: "If there is a good match between the applicant's
research interests and the particular strengths of the school, this can bump
them up a level or two in the hierarchy of admission."

会计学专业是美国留学的热门专业之一，很多人在申请留学美国会计专业时不知道怎样撰写留学文书的内容，为了帮助大家更好的写好会计专业个人陈述，本文向大家推荐了一例美国本科申请会计专业个人陈述范文如下： Personal Statement xxx I always believe that the opportunities only dawned on those with full preparations. On Nov. 17 this year, I participated in the selective trial of the registered accountants held by China Registered Accountant Association, in which I ranked to the top in the examinations and will be sent to practise in the big international accounting company in foreign country. It is a very competitive trial with over 150 excellent students majoring in accounting as the participators, including those in xxx University and xxx University. When my friend asked me how I prepared for this contest and got such a good score, I told them that the only thing I did was to keep a smooth heart and full confidence towards the precipitate contest. Actually, for years, I have never stopped making preparations by learning carefully and diligently for the coming of the contest. Two years ago when I first entered our university, I was selected into the best class in our school for my outstanding score. This class consists of 150 excellent students out of 3000 freshmen that year with the best professors (Including the president of the school, department dean and the doyen professors on every subject) teaching us. Therefore, my view was largely broadened in the nutritious studying atmosphere, where I was deeply influenced by their researching experience and personal charms as well as learning abundant professional knowledge and cultivating my unique ideas. Besides, many of my learning habits and thinking styles came from the study there. Meanwhile however, I also shouldered heavy pressure because we must be the best in such a class under the attention of all the teachers and students in the school. Therefore, I tried to do everything perfectly without missing any small problem. At the end of last year, I happened to find the suggestion collection paper for the “Asset Decrease Accounting Standard” on the website, which was quite different from what I learnt in books. Cherishing the aroused interest, I spent over one month in learning this standard carefully by reading large amount of files and discussing with my teacher for the cognition of the developing process, problems and influence to the registered companies of the Asset Decrease Calculation. Finally, I published my article on the core magazine of “Finance and Accounting”. Besides, I am a girl who liked challenges. On completing my study in the three years, I accepted many challenges without any hesitation. I could get much pleasure when racing with time because I believe that the valuable use of every minute means the success. Therefore, I was very excited to be able to enter the graduate school one year earlier than other students in class taking advantage of my insistent efforts to learn twice as much knowledge as them. Meanwhile, I am very proud that I got the first scholarship in my sophomore year for my excellent score. 美国本科申请草会计专业个人陈述（二）#e# In spite of the limited spare time with 5-6 hours on my daily courses, I actively found many opportunities to do the extracurricular work. For example, I asked my teacher for assisting him with his subject and helping him to summarize the files because I am always trying to form my own points by summarizing the knowledge I learnt. I think that study is an active action, which required me to find some opportunities to improve myself independently. Taking advantage of my excellent behavior, I was finally admitted by the professors and participated in the xxx Social and Scientific Layout Project: “Research on the Accounting Information Transmission Mechanism based on the Company Management” by Professor xxx, in which I was mainly responsible for the Comparison of the Statistics Information Transmission Mechanism among the main countries in the world as the assistant of Professor xx. Through the collection and summarization of the hundreds of files, I further improved reading ability from over ten pages of the Chinese files per hour at the beginning to large amount of English files as well as picking up some useful information per hour. Therefore, my abilities in the information seeking and estimation were largely improved. My campus life is rich and colorful. As the vice president of the Students'Union, who was mainly responsible for the work of Science and Technology Association, I must ...
按以下注意事项写：大学本科生申请材料清单 1、 英文个人简历（Resume）。
2、 学习计划或个人陈述（Personal Statement）。
3、 三封不同风格教授及雇主推荐信（Recommendation Letters）。
是给学校看的.签证官只看你的UNCONDITIONAL OFFER.如果是申请硕士，那么PS的主要内容是介绍你到现今为止取得了哪些成绩.要解释给学校听，为什么他们应该录取你.你又希望在他们学校得到些什么.不要再局限在夸学校上面了.如果是申请PHD，那么所写的东西就不再叫personal statement，而是叫Research proposal，就是你所说的＂学习计划＂.
