I know that putting a lot of emotional stuff into a personal statement can lead to great success, but in writing the first few drafts of my own statement, I find that I'm using more of a logical thought progression explaining why I think I'd be a good candidate for dental school, and almost no emotion comes across. As it is (for what it is), I think it's a pretty strong piece of writing, but I'm worried that a PS completely devoid of emotional content might be a minus to some adcoms. Do you think it might be dangerous NOT to let much passion and/or emotion show through in your PS, but rather to save it for the interviews? It was my first instinct to go logical, but sometimes my instincts suck. What do y'all think?
