Hey guys I'm trying to understand how to write the PS. It's 5300 characters right? Are you just suppose to talk about what ECs/experiences were significant to you? Like what you learned with them and how they make you want to be a doctor? I've heard some say you need a theme? I graduated last June and I am applying now. Do I have to say why I applied a year after senior year or anything or what I have been up to? Also I went part-time during one of my quarters during senior year. Do I need to even talk about this if my GPA is great? My counselors said I don't. If you guys can help break down this PS thing and how to write it that would be great. Thanks guys.

yeah def. but for that body you show why you want to be a doc through your experiences. for example volunteering in a hospital. you got patient contact you enjoyed communicating, watching surgeries,etc. is that what it is?
