    Hello guys,

    After a week of staying home and writing my personal statment/essay, I think I am ready to go. But I would like to get few people to read it and make comments on it. If you would like to read it, please PM me.

    Thanks for your help! :D

    I'll read it. Every school said mine was really good...I sorta have an idea why but not really. I am not a very great writer so I believe it was content they liked so much.

    I'll take the time and send ya back some good comments though.

    PM me for my email
     
  4. i will...pm it to me

    come on guys, the kid might still be able to help out even though he got a D in chem 1. Chem 1 is not that easy. I have seen many smart people right here in my school getting hosed in that class.

    It's all good dude. It was just a rough semester. I think everyone goes through that sometimes.

    I have a damn MBA from Yale and an undergrad in Business w/ a minor in pre-engineering. I'm not paying any attention to any of these kids on here. I've already had 4 pre-interviews at great schools. I'm golden!! Unfortunately, the courses I have left is Chem1/2 and Ochem1/2.

    So you can laugh at my expense homeboy!! But come next cycle, I'll be in D school. Pls believe!! Where will you be?

    haha.. whatever man. If you're so smart, Yale quality, then why did you get a D in Chem 1? That stuff isn't exeactly rocket science. In fact it's downright easy. You can beak and make excuses all you want. :laugh::laugh:


    To answer your question, I will be one year ahead of you in the class of 2011 at my first choice in schools.

    This is in response to jeninny44's comments, I think your def. new around here, I don't see where you get off putting other people down, if you don't have anything positive to say, then just don't say it, we come to SDN for advice and a little motivation. Everyone has rough semesters, some more than others, it's not your place to judge.

    here's a comment for the OP.....people will read your personal statement and they will comment on it. However, some will read it to see what you got and use some of your ideas. Are you okay with that? If you are, then it's okay!

    Why would you even post something like that and expect other people to want to help you out?

    Anyone who has to resort to using another applicant's ideas on why they want to pursue a career in dentistry has bigger problems than needing a critique of their personal statement.

    a pre-engineering person is a person who can build a bridge, but then it'll collapse 5 minutes later. Sorta like a pre-dent....a pre-dent is a person who can do extraction, but your patients will probably turn around and sue you because you did your extraction on the wrong tooth.
