Summer Statement of Purpose Boot Camp (July 29-August 2)

Are you applying to graduate or law school in the fall and need to write your statement of purpose but don't know where to start? Join us for a boot camp program where you start the statement from scratch on Monday morning and end Friday afternoon with a solid draft! 

Program Info

Dates: July 29-August 2

Time: 9 AM-1 PM

Eligibility: Students or alumni who are applying to Master's or Ph.D programs in any field in Fall 2019 (Law and health programs are not supported, except for public health). The program will be most useful to those who have identified specific programs of interest by the time the boot camp begins, so that they can target their statements. 

Description: Participants will start the statement of purpose from scratch and finish the program with a solid draft. The pre-grad advisor will facilitate the program and provide a framework to write the statement. Most work, including all of the writing, is designed to occur during class time. A laptop is required to participate; if you do not have access to one, please let us know. The boot camp is free of charge.

The boot camp is currently full; to be added to the wait-list, please email clegalls@ucdavis.edu.
