Synopsis: If you've already read the usual "tips" and "tricks" for writing the admissions essay and found them unhelpful, this is the book for you. "The Art of the Personal Statement" outlines a unique, ground-breaking approach to the application essay. Rejecting the usual "tips and tricks" approach, author and admissions consultant Alex Thaler (B.A. UC Berkeley; JD University of Pennsylvania) takes the reader on a journey through the brainstorming, drafting, and editing phases of the writing cycle. During the process, the reader will acquire the tools and perspective he/she needs to write a personal statement that stands apart and increases his/her chances of admission. Includes: Introductions/advice by Amy Jarich and Eric Furda, Deans of Admissions at UC Berkeley and University of Pennsylvania. 18 sample essays by successful applicants, followed by comment and analysis. Exercises designed to develop the reader's self awareness. A structured, comprehensive approach to brainstorming, one of the most important and difficult aspects of the writing process.

About the Author: Alex Thaler has worked in test prep/admissions consulting for a little over a decade. He is the founder and CEO of dearadmissions.com and its sister company allionessay.com. He offers his personal services through alexthalerconsulting.com. Alex cut his teeth as an SAT instructor for the Princeton Review shortly after graduating from college in 2002. Within a short time he consistently achieved average student score increases of over 200 points (before the test was restructured in 2005). After earning multiple promotions at the Princeton Review and expanding his repertoire to include LSAT classes he was offered a position at Compass Education, where he immediately distinguished himself by scoring a perfect 2400 on the diagnostic test. In 2007 Alex shifted his focus to admissions essays as an essay consultant for Stacy Blackman Consulting, a boutique MBA application consulting firm. Since 2007, he has worked primarily as an admissions consultant, with a particular emphasis on application essays. The diversity of Alex’s practice is reflected in the diversity of his clients. His clients range in age from 16 to 45 and hail from all over the world. They have gone on to attend schools like Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, NYU, and a variety of other schools across the academic spectrum. Alex received his B.A. from UC Berkeley and his J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School. He currently lives with his wife and daughter in Berkeley, California, about a mile south of campus.
