    I will chime in as one of the adcoms on this forum, and as someone who reads a lot of personal statements each year. For starters, ignore everything @The Dragon Slayer has posted. It's not that it's 100% incorrect, but there is not point in trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. Every...

    How important is "crafting a narrative"?

    --Begin rant/confession/vent-- Honestly, this frightens me a bit. At least on SDN, it seems that in addition to "checking all the boxes" (or whatever you want to call it), in order to be a stellar applicant, you must also have this "narrative" -- beautifully crafted in such a fanciful way that...

    I got positive feedback on my last personal statement, and the experience is one that I think truly played a very large role in my pursuit of medicine, beyond anything new I have done in my gap year. Instead of scrapping the whole thing and rewriting a new (potentially weaker) one, could I...
