What should you write / not write in your personal statement? How do you write something that will make you stand out?
If you stick to these guidelines, you will have personal statement that will stand out for sure.
- Tell a story. Use narrative. Stories are so much easier for your reader to pay attention to and remember. And if there’s one thing you want to come out of your personal statement, it’s for people to remember you.
- Use examples rather than blanket statements. Everyone knows you want to go into medicine to help people, but don’t just say that. Tell a story of a time you helped someone and relay how it affected you.
- Relate your outside interests to medicine. How has your love for sports/dance/music/mission work/travel/etc affected and strengthened your love for medicine? How will those interests make you a better doctor?
- Leave ‘em guessing. Don’t tell your whole life story, but tell enough about your life or interests to make the reader want to find out more. That’s the stuff that makes for a good interview. Believe me, interviewers don’t want to just ask you all the same stuff you’ve already written.
- Brag on yourself a little. The AdCom is looking to be impressed. Ask your friends what your best qualities are, and talk those up in your personal statement.
- Talk about your personal experiences that have influenced you to go into medicine. But also be aware that everyone has a sick family member story, and that those stories are pretty common in personal statements.
- Give reasons why other careers are not for you. Sure, you love science. We get that. Go deeper. Why do you need to be a doctor of all things? Why is teaching chemistry not for you? Why didn’t you go to nursing school?
- Remember that you can tailor your personal statement to each program. If you’re applying to a program that has a very distinctive feature, you may want to talk about how that feature interests you. But don’t throw that same statement out to every school.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."
WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION
THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT
