Hello- I have a friend applying to a science grad school (1 year program) to bring up her science gpa. For those who have been in a similar situation and have written personal statements to grad schools for this purpose, how do you tie together the fact that you are interested in research, but your future goals are to do with medicine and research. In other words, how to avoid coming off as just using the grad school as a stepping stone to get into med school. She really does like research and the stuff they teach at this grad school. We were wondering if the admissions board would wonder why she didnt just apply to med school straight out of undergrad. Any advice would be helpful!
