SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Greetings friends, I plan on applying to medical school next application cycle in 2013. I have underwent some great changes in my life: initially being slightly religious, then completely abandoning religion, and recently in the past few years, having turning back to the faith. A large reason for my change of heart is a miracle which I experienced. I was healed physically in this occurrence. I plan on including this, if not highly detailed, with at least a description in my personal statement. The occurrence and following events are indeed my most meaningful experiences. I understand the great potential for the miracle to seem unbelievable and false to many who would read about it. I anticipate many to scoff at my application and challenge the veracity of my life's events, as I likely would have done years ago to someone whose application entailed a similar experience. There is no medical explanation for my healing, and I am 100% confident it was of divine intervention. As a former atheist--nay, an anti-theist at that--I can imagine the disbelief after reading such a personal statement. I am set on including my most meaningful experiences into whatever I write, as I will not lie. To the extent of which I describe my life's vicissitudes, however, I am unsure of. My question is: What would your opinions be on reading such an anecdote? I understand there are religiously affiliated schools such as Loma Linda, however, I wonder at the reactions of admissions committees at more liberal schools? Thank-you!
