Personal Insight
Introduction
The personal insight questions are about getting to know you - your life experience, interests,
ambitions and inspirations.
Think of it as your interview with the admissions office. Be open. Be reflective. Find your individual
voice and express it.
While this section of the application is just one part UC considers when making our admission
decision, it helps provide context for the rest of your application.
A few tips:
It's a good idea to work on your answers before you enter them into the application.
Visit the admissions website to read more about the questions, download the worksheets,
and get tips and suggestions for how to get started.
Use your own voice: Your answers should reflect your ideas and be written by you
alone. Don't be afraid to talk about yourself in the first person (for example, "I" and "my").
There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. It's about getting to know you
in your own unique voice.

Proofread and edit: Although this is not an essay or a writing test, make sure to check
your work. Grammatical and spelling errors can get in the way of what you're trying to
communicate.
Formatting your answers
1. Because of the 30-minute time limit in place on each page of this application, we
recommend that you compose and save your answers using a text editing program such as
MS Word, Google Docs, Notepad or Textedit, then copy and paste them into the form
fields.
2. Use only standard American English alphanumeric characters (numbers 0 through 9
and letters a through z) and the other characters found on a standard English keyboard: !
@ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = [ ] \ { } | ; : ' " , < . > / ? excluding ~ . Do not use smart quotes,
accented characters or foreign language characters as they will be replaced with ASCII
character substitutions.
3. Save and reread your answers to make sure you caught any issues.
