Personal Statement Question.

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by Beoz, Jun 21, 2002.

  1. I was told that mentioning that you grew up with relatives who were doctors is a good thing to put on your PS. Is this a good idea?

    I suppose it shows that you were introduced into medicine a long time ago and have some experience with the profesion.

    It's good to mention because medical schools will think "ok, so this guy/gal probably knows what he/she is getting into in terms of long hours, stressful work, etc..."

    Don't dwell on it though... you want them to know that you're not just interested in continuting a family legacy.

  3. Gracias, I was not going to mention it at all because it was something I was born into and did not achieve. But it is an advantage. I will mention it and definately not dwell on it.
