i'm kinda stuck about what to write in my application essay. it's hard to pin down what is it that really motivates me to be a doctor. after reading the sdn essay guide i'm even more uncertain about what to write. at first i was going to write that it was my father that motivated me but reading the sdn guide seems to make me hesitate about doing this cos they mentioned that it might be interpreted as some1 being immature and can't think for themselves. now i'm thinking more along the lines of writing about growing up basically in a clinic and having some clinical experience since my father worked from home and i helped out in the clinic a lot. i can take b/p, read prescriptions, do some stitching (with guidance of course since patients would probably not let a teenager stitch their wound), do a wound dressing, do some diagnosis etc... also since my IT information system project was to computerize a diagnosis recording system with statistical reports i was thinking about writing that too. what do u guys think? what did u write about?
