So, I’m still re-arranging the blog around in attempts to make it easier to navigate. But as things pile up, my board exam is coming up, courses, and random things I took on, so it’s going to take a while to get things how I’d like them [here]. I am actually on vacation, and I thought I’d do some background editing here. But, instead the instinct to survive took over, and I’m doing some board review (biochemistry, yay!). However, as people are applying soon and you may be one of them, thus I thought it’d be helpful to just gather-up some articles I wrote:
Medical School Admissions Guide – if you take two things away from this whole page, 1) apply early to medical school and 2) buy the Medical School Admissions Guide access for your application year!
Personal Statement Drafting and Planning Phase
Personal Statement Editing Phase
Example Personal Statement
Mine. – Sorry, I do have a trove of personal statements on my hard drive, but I only have permission to really put my own personal statement up. If I edited your personal statement, and you’d like you’re to go up here too just let me know.
Medical School Application
Primary Application Samples (mine)
Work Activities Section of Application – especially important for nontraditional applicants!
Medical School Interviews
My Limited Interview Experience – went on 5 interviews [across the country], declined a couple mostly due to budget constraints.
Elevator Speeches – optional read
Good luck and Best Wishes!
