Growing up in a family of doctors and engineers, I was always intrigued by the science subjects and from a very early age, I knew that I would be foraying into this realm. My father being a doctor and my elder brother an electrical engineer, I spent my days with growing fascination as I watched them excel in their respective fields, and hoped to do, if not more, then at least as much as they do. Now, when I am standing at the crossroads of one of the most important decisions of my life, I see LUMS as a guiding light providing the best opportunities for an exemplary undergraduate experience, in Pakistan, whilst training its students at international standards.
I’ve always taken a keen interest in the modernization of medicine and the ever growing use of technology in it to improve its precision and accuracy. Recently, the application of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine is reaching a milestone by its latest development in lung cancer detection with 90% success rate. Moreover, the integration of Machine Learning into Biology has been a major breakthrough in the world of Medicine. Such revolutionary findings, brought about by the beautiful amalgamation of biology and mathematics, has my heart set upon following a career which does not only focus on making unimaginable discoveries but, on a larger scale, thrives to make the world a better place. Despite the strides in technological advances for the rest of the world, Pakistan is being drastically left in the dust. The increasing technological gap has led me to believe that we are in need of competent people qualified in this field, to abridge it, and increase the standard of all our lives, doctors like my father and patients alike.
My academic background serves as a prerequisite for this program as I am currently studying Biology, Mathematics, and Advanced Mathematics in my A-Levels. Studying Advanced Mathematics has instilled a passion in me for Probability studies, which is a major part of Artificial Intelligence. Not only do I enjoy studying it, but I am astounded by its integral uses in AI and subsequently, in Computational Biology.
I have also worked with my father in one of his projects that aimed to treat hepatitis patients from a remote area outside Lahore. During that time, I often contemplated how technological advances in medicine could save the lives of many deprived people of Pakistan if the facilities are timely provided.(Please detail this project and expand in a separate paragraph. Additions of life experiences, hardships overcome, and in general meaningful projects will be essential improvements in the main body of this statement).
My endeavors outside the class have also helped shaped my personality. While I’ve gained valuable cooperation and teamwork skills as our school’s English magazine co-editor(do add any personal experiences, problems overcome or other relevant contributory information during this position), writing has been a vital tool for me to voice my intellectual angst. My childhood love for reading has added to my writing proficiency as my taste has evolved from reading Enid Blyton and Rowling to Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy.
The enriching environment at ___ (mention university name) is an ideal fit to pursue the undergraduate degree in _ for its challenging curriculum and flexibility in opting for courses from multiple disciplines such as Biology and Computer Science. I firmly believe that a unique concentration on academics along with social life will make four years here deeply invigorating.

(In the personal statement you can also mention personal experiences ,therefore do not hesitate to be a little personal/emotional while writing a college essay)

Personal Statement for University Applications

I have always been intrigued by the works and theories put forward by scientists and theorists who worked for years and years for the sake of innovation and understanding of reality. Sciences have always been my favorite because I love to learn more about the fundamental entity of nature and the machines that surround us now. The laws of Physics and the formulae of Mathematics saturate my thoughts. Even though these two fields are very much related, both of them have a discrete spark that ignites a flame of curiosity in me.

The small practicals that I performed in Primary school were all foreign to me but as I learnt more about static electricity and attraction between opposite charges I was able to satisfy myself through Physics and its implementation in daily life. Physics had helped me in understanding better and due to this I really want to consider Physics in higher studies. Now that I know that the small rectangular green chip in toy cars and remote controls is not just a piece of plastic but a chip carrier where multiple integrated circuits are mounted upon, I want to decipher the science behind it. My curiosity for such things can only be pacified if I could enravel the world of Physics.

Recently during attending an Astronomy and Astrophotography camp in India I was able to explore a field that was alien to me. The telescopes that I saw at the camps are the beautiful outcomes of the application of optical physics and engineering. The pictures that were taken at the camp were utterly beautiful and enchanting to me. The unknown facts and information in these pictures enticed me. The cameras that are behind these pictures are also the creation of Physics and science. The diversity of Physics and its application are in-commensurable. Everything in this vast field of Physics is interconnected by small integral threads that make the whole outcomes even more beautiful.

There are many fields of Physics that I still haven’t been acquainted with. Names such as Nano physics, Astrophysics, Cosmology and Particle Physics attract me like an opposite pole of the magnet. I aspire to be someone who also works in such fields that inspire and captivate the older and younger generation. I want to be able to amalgamate all the things that I have learnt so far and apply them with assiduity and dedication.

Apart from my immense interest in Physics, I also actively participate in multiple community service projects. I have always tried my best to work for a cause that will benefit others and I also encourage my peers to do so. I openly speak up for what I believe to be right and also degrade hatred and negativity. Volunteering at many social service projects has immensely improved my ability to communicate and work with other members. I have gained monumental erudite regarding many social problems faced by different and have learned to celebrate diversity and cultures. My mother has always encouraged me to utilize my abilities to the best and strive for what seems impossible and that has really helped me in staying motivated towards my studies as well as my responsibility towards the society.

_____(state the name of the university) is one of the best Universities in _____(mention the city/country the university is situated at) where I will be able to interact with many others students coming from dissimilar backgrounds and cultures. It is a place where I will learn to apply my concepts and enhance my communication skills. The quality labs and education at ____ (state the name of the university) are unparalleled. Hence here I will be able to take a big step towards my future, my dreams and my goals.

Taking everything into consideration, I totally realize that the inaccurate statements may cause my offer application refusal. I believe that I will be able to study in the academically challenging environment at _______(mention the name of the university), as a good student with a higher grade. I will always pursue all the rules and regulations. I look forward for your positive response and I really appreciate your time and consideration.

PERSONAL STATEMENT For Electrical Engineering

The girl in the mirror looks like me; but her eyes don’t look like mine. Mine were innocent and scared, but hers are cold and fearless. She looks stronger than me because of the sacrifices she knows her mother gave to pull off from the in laws which have yet not accepted the fact of her to study. It is hard to accept that this girl is me, but this is who I need to be now. This is the reality. So I don’t mind accepting the new me as long as I can still hope that somewhere inside her still lies the old me that will re-live once the sacrifices pay off.I cannot pinpoint exactly who I owe my zest for life and hope for future that lies ahead full of promise stretching like golden ripe corn swaying in the gentle summer breeze but I can say for sure that my mother’s sentence “I have my complete fate in you and you can do thisi” from year 2004 till 2017 will stay etched in my memory.

I wish I could start off as the daughter of a Mill-owner or the sister of a politician. I wish I could write about (mention name) who stars in Holly wood- like fantasies or won several international competitions because she had the freedom to study. These claims would be at worst outright lies. Who am I? I am the product of passion and my mother’s sacrifices. Before anything, I am myself; I am me. I am Asna.

“Why do you want to be an engineer?,” they ask, “My childhood dream”, I say. This is a lie which I reveal today; I have burnt my midnight oils to keep up my academic record because the world bet upon my mother’s words and her status. Sounds dramatic, right? But this is the cruel reality of my life.

Im basically a hopeless romantic who is passionately curious. Let it be the floating pieces of jigsaw puzzle that collide with each other, not physically but verbally, sometimes symbiotically or otherwise parasitically. Or Let it be flirting of particles with their antiparticles.

Why EE? We are, each of us, a little universe. I love the way our universe flirts. In just centuries, we have come from telephoneto working on the Doremon’s Anywhere. Millions of bulbs lighting up a city at night, microwaves communicate words across oceans, the means to reproduce and re-live sounds and sights, electricity has transformed all of humanity in a few short and increasingly hectic generations. The ability of electrical engineers to flirt with electrons has worked wonders. Impressed by these phenomenal advancements, I am ambitious to join the wonderful people who relentlessly strive to change our lives for the better.

Sample Personal Statement for Admission to Business School

Being born and raised in the similarly fast moving (and yet, geographically distant from Lahore) city of Karachi, I had heard heaps about the might and the illustriousness that (mention your university name), as an institute, is embellished with for over a decade now. When I think of (mention your university name) , the supreme aspect of it that fuels my desire to immerse myself in this prestigious learning environment is the larger than life learning resources that (mention your university name) is equipped with. To be associated with (mention your university name) would not just be the ultimate realization of my most sought after desire but would also be the concrete, binding force which will align my competencies with those required by the professional career I intend to pursue. To address the most crucial question as to why do I prioritize (mention your university name) for an undergraduate degree over numerous other universities in Pakistan, the answer is fairly simple. As an institute, (mention your university name) doesn’t only cater to the theoretical aspects of a subject, but also enhances one’s critical thinking capabilities. It teaches you the intricate details of the science of analyzing, making rational judgements, and drafting reasonable conclusions. They say a smooth sea never makes a skilled sailor. As an individual, I yearn for challenges. I believe, (mention your university name) will provide me with a multi-dimensional educational environment which will set out challenges for me, enabling me to step out of my comfort zone, shun away my fears and frights, and to aim for zeniths I did not know existed. Why not go abroad? People often tend to undermine what the education system of our country is capable of. Yes, there are flaws but with institutes like (mention your university name) , I am sure there is not going to be a single prospect of my degree that (mention your university name) would not be able to cater to. (mention your university name) is, I believe, well equipped with all the human and nonhuman attributes that any foreign university can only aim for. Pakistan at the moment faces a dearth of expertise in a lot of fields and I believe that the only possible fix to it could be attained through education and for that we need to reinstate our trust in our institutes and in our system. The country would obviously not progress if we abandon the institutes and fly away. After giving a lot of thought to this, I have opted to pursue an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance or Economics. The prime reason why I have prioritized Accounting and Finance over other fields is because I believe that Finance has the capability to revolutionize things ranging from something as small-scale as a company to the whole country. As long as money is the driving force, accountants will be leading the rest of the world. It’s an undeniable fact that accountants and finance professionals have to be ahead of times and stay abreast of the changes materializing across the globe but it’s unlikely that the profession will go obsolete any time soon. In addition to this, an Accountant has a spot fixed for himself in almost every firm, every field, industry or sector. Furthermore, Accounting & Finance is the only field which complements other subject areas well, particularly those which fall under the large bracket of business. Second best option that I consider most suitable for myself after ACF is Economics and Math. There is no aspect of our everyday life which is not influenced by economics at large. From how much money I have at my disposal to purchase what I want to how much interest I have to pay the bank when I borrow money-everything revolves around the economic skeleton of the country. I chose to study Mathematics as I enjoy how it has the capability to convey logic in numbers and variables. I love how numbers can speak so much and hold so much value which even words fail to exhibit at times. Its brilliant how math as a subject doesn’t only need concentration, but logical reasoning, common sense, a sense of rationality, and open-mindedness unlike the theory oriented courses which usually aim for rote learning. Moreover, this combination will enable me to transcend into a variety of challenging areas ranging from playing with the most complex numbers to analyzing the impact of technologies. As a student, I would rank myself with a 9/10 when it comes to meeting deadlines. My ability to work well in a team has been demonstrated in a number of group projects and the fact that I made it as the House Captain of the Student Council at my school. Not only did I develop my communication and skills, I also learnt how to negotiate and juggle tasks. At school I actively took part in the student council and organized a charity event, where we set up a lot of fun activities for the students. This was an accomplishment considering such events were unusual in my school. We raised a large sum of money which was donated to various charitable organizations. For these events to be successful, I needed to be able to communicate well with the students and ask for their opinions and preferences. This helped me improve my communication skills which will be essential for any career that I wish to embark upon. I have penned down my long term career and academic goals in black and white, and am therefore fully motivated and prepared for this degree.

Sample Personal Statement


I wish I could start off my autobiography as the daughter of a minister or the sister of a politician. I wish I could write about (your name) who stars in Holly wood- like fantasies. If only my Biography could consist of my name being followed by Master Chef, best mathematician of all times , universal bestfriend or a princess. These claims would be at worst outright lies or at best, best exaggerated character. Who am I? I am the product of reality and my imagination. Before anything, I am myself; I am me. I am (your name).
Being precise, I am a sixteen year old girl, born in Lahore and brought up in Multan and back to Lahore again. I took my Early School Education from The A B C D School Multan and did my O-levels from A B C D School campus. I had 5A*s and 3As in my O-levels. I am currently doing my A-1 from the A B C D School . I have been a member of student council since grade 2 either as captain of Red House, vice house caption of Yellow House, president of Debating society, President of English Literary Society, President of Urdu Literary Society, President of Pythagorian society, Captain of Science Society, prefect of section and etc. My whole school life is enriched with Co-Curriculars starting from scoring 7th position in Multan and 29th position in A B C D School , being nominated for National Mohammadi Award, receiving Gold and silver medals for academic and overall performance, Representing Pakistan in Chinese Embassy, being in top 3 in debating competitions, scoring first position in many inter-city science, maths, music and dramatics competitions, heading many delegations to different schools, being qualified for Nationals in Spelling Bee Competition to the “Founder” of One step thousand Smiles , a student consisting organizations which aims to spread happiness in needy and poor, and etc.
Now when it comes to my interests, one word defines it all “music’. I see perceive it in a totally different manner. For me, music is a strange linkage between souls which aids in conveying one’s ideas in the most seraphic way. A lot of people think of paintings and drawings when you say the word ‘art’. But in reality, art is anything that ‘is beautiful, appealing or more than ordinary significance’ and there is nothing more fascinating than soft tunes which heals your soul. Everyone’s ears and heart are tuned differently according to the chords of Life. If I didn’t have to earn money or run a family and I was to choose to be someone who I really wanted to be, I would choose to be a musician – percussionist. This talent may not seem significant but talent is what changes the world. Talent is what world needs. Talent is and dedication together can do wonders. Winston Churchil once said,” To everyone out there comes an opportunity when he is tapped on the shoulder to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents”


When it comes to my goals and ambitions, I want pursue my career in Electrical Engineering. I want to be someone who studies in (ABCD) University on 100% scholarship like in A-levels. This sentence may seem impossible to the ordinary but I-m-possible to someone like me. Now when it comes to world I want to live in. I want to live in a world where I donot have to spend my life pleasing people which expect me to fly at their command. A world where instead of my education talent defines me. A world where I own my dreams instead of the fear of failing those who expect me to do what I am told. A world where people do not expect me to be the second Einstein, Newton, Mohammad Ali or Bill Gates but expect me to be the First (your name); the every first me.
