Quick Tips

  • Your personal statement is really your chance to shine here. Outline your career goals, why you are passionate about the video game industry, what you hope to accomplish during the rest of your time in college … really anything that will demonstrate your personality and commitment to your career path.
  • Find two people who know you well enough to write glowing letters of recommendation for you, but also make sure they are honest and don’t go over the top. Also, no family members allowed!
  • Make sure your personal statement is free of any grammar/spelling errors! Proofread before you turn it in!
