Hey everyone! I know that there was a thread about this a while back (I don't remember when), but I thought it would be fun to start this up again. My friend and I were doing this last night, and I think it would be fun for us to do too! It might be a good way to relieve us of all this stress while we're waiting to hear from our schools. Basically I'll start the first few lines of a personal statement, and you guys can add the rest and just have a little fun with it! If you're posting something, be sure to copy/paste everything else from previous posts in your reply so it appears neat. And you can change mine if you want, I just wanted to get something going lol. Ok, 5000 characters. Ready, set, go! I was 5 years old. I could not clearly see my dog behind the shroud of tears that blinded my eyes. The car had damaged his side so badly, I really did not think he was going to make it. I quickly raced inside the house and grabbed my dad's emergency bag. He was not at home, as he was busy managing his 20 clinics around the world, his presidency at the AVMA, and his professor status at all 28 vet schools, so I had to do the procedure on my own. I had lost both my arms in a fight with a tiger as a baby, so I did surgery on that dog with my bare feet and nursed him back to health. Watching that dog survive made me realize my dream of becoming a veterinarian.
