Advice on Personal Statement for Lund University Admissions

The Lund University personal statement needs to be an essay that answers four questions. Any essay that does not answer all four will be disqualified. Each question should be answered between 100 and 180 words each. The answers the committee wants are ones that are entirely truthful, personal, and succinct. Applicants should really take the time to write well thought out answers that make them stand out from the other applicants. Proofreading the essay is important because small spelling and errors can reflect very negatively on an application.
