    for all of you SDNer's that completed/working on the MCV/VCU secondary, How long was your "future vision statement"...i know they said a few sentences but sine I applied last year, I have a whole paragraph of the Practice Vision statement from AMCAS..i don't know if i should cut it down or just use the same thing.
    Also, what did you guys write on the handwritten essay? Thanks a lot,
    anxious

    Mine was about two paragraphs long. The handwritten one I did was about why I was interested in the school. Don't sweat it. ;)

    For the VCU one, I decided to write about the unique qualities I thought I could bring to the class.

    they asked for a "few sentences," so i wrote a total of 4 sentences. something like, "i have a strong desire to practice in an urban, public hospital setting in the future...(insert reasons why, how my background has prepared me for it, etc.). hope that helps!

    I'm an in-stater who's been offered an interview. My file was complete since 9/9, and I just found out about the interview this week. If you want stats, PM me.

    Good luck to everyone!
