Quantcast

is it seen as negative if you refer to yourself as a "future physician" in your PS?

How would you go about doing so? I'm trying to say what I envision myself to be in the future if I were to get accepted. But I don't want to sound arrogant at the same time.

something along the lines of "As a future physician, I see myself x, y, z."

If you're concerned, you could just say "aspiring physician"

It's fine. Just make sure when you do mention something along the lines of envisioning yourself as a physician, you mention that it is what you hope to experience in the future - because you're not a physician quite yet. :)

I said "As a physician, I intend to do X, Y, Z" in a few secondaries. I don't think its an issue.
