This is simply not true. Having talked to a friend who used to be on a med school adcom, the PS of an academically qualified applicant is really not that important. If it is written poorly, or your motivations appear weak, then the PS becomes important for the wrong reasons. I don't think you'll have that problem.I know my stats are decent, but not crazy good. I will be fortunate to have schools give me a second look, but if I cannot convince them in my PS, the numbers mean nothing!
