Students often overlook the importance of the autobiographical sketch, which should be viewed as a critical component of the application. It is your opportunity to highlight your achievements. The challenge is to convey these experiences both clearly and concisely. We make detailed comments to help you refine your autobiographical sketch. Specifically, we provide:

  • Editorial suggestions to make your entries both effective and precise given restricted character counts.
  • Advice on activities to include and exclude.
  • Recommendations on formatting, editing and style to ensure clarity and consistency.

This package includes a detailed set of written comments and a phone meeting to discuss our recommendations.   contact us for more about this service

Frequently Asked Question:

The application requires a personal statement (application essay) and an autobiographical sketch. What document should I start writing first?"

Astroff Response: Start with Your Autobiographical Sketch. We recommend drafting the autobiographical sketch before approaching your personal statement. The task of reviewing past activities and accomplishments is a good way of starting the writing process and identifying common themes.
