    I am in the process of drafting my personal statement for FM programs and right now in a 'crunch' situation trying to trim down the length coz I don't want to bore the admission commitee! I was wondering if I can get some clues about what is 'good' to include and what not to include. I need some perspectives, esp regarding:

    1. Previous clinical experiences in home country for IMGs ( I know US clinical experience should definitely be included)

    2. Should I even address difficult personal issues or should I only focus on positive things to avoid sounding whiny? Or on the flip side, addressing these difficulties may add some 'flow' to my PS and convince the reader about what I have become as a result of these experiences that may make me a better candidate?

    Comments please!
