I would like to start this thread to facilitate us MD/PhD applicants who are writing our personal statements. The AMCAS personal statement is even more tough for us MD/PhD applicants because we have to incorporate our extensive research experiences. The 5300 character limit is a real killer. Are your personal statements focused more on clinical or research aspect? Mine is 60% clinical and 40% research. Also, does anyone know if there are any sample AMCAS personal statements from MD/PhD applicants on the web that we can read?
