    my school wants us to have a rough draft of our personal statement by end of break, so that's what i worked on this week. i just kinda went for it, and it's not the best thing i've ever written. some of my concerns are that i think i've tried to show more qualities i have that i think are good for a doctor to have. and i've also focused more on 3 main things. i have more experiences shadowing doctors and doing research in labs, but i didn't think of a good way to fit it in smoothly. also, i'm slightly over the character limit, but i'm not that concerned - i'll find a way to fit it.

    i know there was a thread for reader's list...but there weren't too many recent posts so i just decided to make a new thread.

    any comments would be much obliged :)

    I imagine there's no limit, but make sure you spend enough time on each character. If you have too many characters, readers will just get confused on which one is which.
