In addition to hard data such as your grades and your résumé, we require a motivational letter as part of the admissions process. To aid you in this process, we have devised a few questions that we would like you to answer. We stress that we favor the personal letter over the professional letter and that there is not one ‘correct’ or ‘best’ answer. We have enough data about you. Hence, what we are most interested in is learning about your personality. Please limit your motivational letter to one page. Good luck!
- How would you introduce yourself to other participants in the first meeting?
- What do you hope to gain from the course and from others?
