    Hi everyone. I'm new here.

    Is anyone willing to give my personal statement essay a once-over and provide me some feedback? I literally worked on it all day and I'm so frustrated over it. I wrote too much and I'm trying to figure out where I can trim it down and edit. I feel like I still have a lot of work to do because it just sounds like total crap to me and I'm running out of ideas to do to make it flow better. :(

    Also, does anyone know what's the average number of schools students apply to thru the AADSAS? I wasn't prepared to see how costly applying to even a few schools is.

    Any response is greatly appreciated.

    Hey don't stress out too much about it- the essay is not as important as your grades, DAT, research... etc

    I am applying to 11 schools, but it seems like most of my friends are applying to 14+

    I disagree. Between two otherwise equal candidates, one with a strong application essay and the other listed as fourth author in some obscure basic science study, the good essay will get the interview every time.
