This portion of the application is optional and no negative inferences will be drawn if you elect not to write a statement of interest. The purpose of the statement of interest is to give students an opportunity to provide additional information for the board to consider when making selections. Your statement can include any information about yourself that you feel is not adequately expressed by your resume and/or any information about why you are interested in JLEP specifically and what all you feel you would bring to the journal. Please keep your statement to one page, double-spaced.
