you guys have alluded to threads regarding md/phd personal statements, but i can't find them. my question is essentially as follows: how much can one indicate that their intent to pursue md/phd on the personal statement? i will be applying to all md/phd programs (no med only). i realize that the personal statement is essentially for medical school, and supplmentals etc address ones research, but would it be prudent to emphasize ones strong interest in science? i'm not quite sure if that was coherent ... nevertheless, can those with application experience speak to this issue?
