    Sure I'll read a few, I think I might be better at reading and giving editing tips than actually writing, lol.

    As per Riceman's comment, I'm noting the fact that I'm applying this year in case it affects anyone's decision. That said, I'm not going to steal your PS, and I'm a darn good editor :)

    I like the idea, but I'm curious if the people reading are all people who've already successfully been through the cycle? I think it would be pointless for other pre-meds to be reading personal statements since most don't know how theirs will come across.

    I applied this cycle and am currently on 3 waitlists. I do understand your point, but in my case, my personal statement is for sure not the reason I'm not getting in. It's probably one of the strongest points of my application (unfortunately, lol - I'd rather have a strong mcat!). I am re-using my same PS this time around if I have to reapply (with, perhaps, a few updates), as it has been complimented on by a number of interviewers and committee members. But, if it makes anyone uncomfortable, know that I am likely reapplying this year. I promise I won't be stealing anything, though. :)

    Just added a brief profile due to MedStudentWanna's concerns. But, the more the merrier; it wouldn't hurt for more people to read and help edit a PS no matter how they did in their respective application cycles.

    Oh no - I'm wrong. I'm just remembering the thread like this for last year's cycle. Sorry :(


    And another thing, you might want to put email addresses in the name @ college.edu with the spaces so that spam crawlers don't pick them up :)

    I wasn't talking about someone like you. I should have been more clear. If you're on waitlists, you've obviously applied and done well enough to get to interviews. I was referring to pre-meds who've never applied before.

    The only reason I bring this up is because I've seen undergrads give advice on personal statements for grad school to other undergrads and usually, it's like the blind leading the blind. I have horror stories I could share!

    I just meant that other pre-meds who haven't applied and maybe who haven't even written their personal statement yet are probably not as knowledgeable as someone who's been through the cycle at least once, whether or not they got in.

    Some judge on the American Idol show. I don't watch but from clips and commercials, it appears that he's brutally honest and likes to make people cry.

    Oh. I'm only obliquely aware of American Idol (and most things in pop culture for that matter).

    I'm not about schadenfreude or sadism, though. But I do think that with something as critical as a PS for your med school application, you shouldn't pull any punches.

    I also know that for some people, criticism--even if constructive and justified--tastes like poison. I guess I just like people to brace for potential criticism up front. Helps it go down easier.

    In case you misunderstood me, I didn't mean to imply that it was a terrible thing to be brutally honest. It's very necessary.
