Do AdComs look favorably upon that? For example, in my case (i'll give a briefff summary)...I had to have five surgeries (one of them being a failed surgery). I lived with a bandage wrapped around my head for 2 years. Missed 4 months of high school. Was depressed out of my mind and didn't succeed in anything. Then it was my surgeon who changed my life...he kept telling me that "everything I was going through, was to make me a stronger person..." so that I "could do great things in this world." He always told me to set the highest goals. And that changed my life. After my last surgery, my surgeon told me to "make an impact on the world!" Ever since then I've experienced nothing but happiness and success. In essence that is what incited my desire to become a doctor...I want to heal people not only physically, but intrinsically (through inspiration, encouragement, advice, etc.) as well--especially on children going through difficult operations. Is a story like this something that AdComs would look favorably upon or is it too hackneyed? I have no idea... HELP!
