Common App Personal Statement
As an aspiring investment banker, I'm applying to several different schools for transfer purposes. Some have economics programs, some have business programs, and some have both. In my personal statement, how can I write about my reasons for wanting to transfer without sounding too general? I keep writing about the criteria I want in the school I transfer to, but whenever I do so, I talk about how I want to get a certain kind of education in business OR economics. I don't want to sound uncertain, but I can't avoid conflating the two since some schools have one or both programs.
