Personal Statement Title?

Recommended Posts

What's the practice for titling personal statements? McGill's the only school I applied to outside of Ontario and when you apply through OLSAS there's boxes to copy and paste your personal statements in. I've seen mixed advice online (some sites saying not to give it a title and others saying to pick an attention-grabbing title) and McGill's instructions don't specify anything about a title.

Probably no longer relevant but I didn't use a title and if anything, I would advise against it since it eats into your word count.

I believe it falls under "Don't be afraid to be original, but be careful not to sacrifice substance." If you are writing your personal statement like it's the back of a biography, then it should probably have a title. 

Substance can also be sacrificed by not being concise.
