Personal Statement: Students returning from a college withdrawal report that it is helpful to create a plan about how they will respond to future challenges that may arise. By making a specific, realistic plan, students increase their ability to respond positively and take action during a time of difficulty. It is also useful to share the plan with others, so support can be offered in carrying out the plan. With this said, please imagine you are back on campus and experiencing challenges similar to those which led to your departure. Please compose a response that addresses your specific plan of action, answers these questions, and speaks to your ability to achieve academic success.
- How would you recognize that support was needed?
- What steps would you take to address the challenges?
- What person (s) or resource (s) would you reach out to?
- What would help you follow through with these steps, even if they felt difficult?
