i'm brainstorming for my personal statement. there are certain events thats happened in my life that have pushed me to pursue medicine. however i cant avoid the feeling that by talking about them in my PS, interviews etc, its pretty tactless, shameless. I feel like I'm exploiting a personal tragedy just to get into med school. Quite honestly, i probably wont want to talk about them in interviews either. On the other hand, its a fairly significant reason why i want to pursue medicine. Is there a balance between exploitation and sharing a true insight into your desire to become a doc?
