How do you answer the “tell us about yourself” question on the secondary? Where do I start?
Whenever I found this question, I opted for the condensed version of what I’ve done with myself since college. It doesn’t have to be detailed - that gives them the opportunity to ask you for more details at an interview. Try to approach it from a different angle than your personal statement. I’m sure they are also giving you the chance to talk about family, hobbies, interests . . . stuff beyond what they get in the application.
Aren’t secondaries fun?
I also took that opportunity to answer questions that I thought people would have about my application that I wasn’t able to address in my personal statement or wanted to expand upon that I only had a brief chance to mention in my personal statement.
