Hello all, Last year, Kahr started a thread on personal statement reviewing. Many of the current reviewers on the old thread are mostly inactive. I thought it would be nice to start a new thread for the applicants for this 2013-2014 cycle starting on June 3rd. I was blessed to have had quite a few people look over my personal statement when I applied, and last year, I helped a lot of people by proofreading their essays. Hopefully this act of kindness can continue for the upcoming years. If you are a current dental student and/or are savvy with essay editing, please post here or send me a PM so I can list you here. I can remove you if you are too busy. I will continue to edit this thread as reviewers come and go. Rules for the reviewers: Please keep the essays confidential and do not share with others. If you are backed up and can't get to some of the essays, let them know or have them ask other reviewers. Be kind to the writers. Rules for the reviewees: The personal statement is limited to approximately one page (4,500 characters, including spaces) on the actual AADSAS application. Please be be polite and do not demand the reviewers to get back to you. This is a free service, and it is YOUR duty to write your statement and provide others with enough time to review. No one can promise an over night edit. And please courteously reply to the reviewer whether you've received the edits. When you message the reviewers, do not paste the statement directly. Ask if they're available to review your statement and see how they'd like to receive it before assuming everyone is ready. Most of us prefer if it's in a document and emailed to us. We have no way of editing it if it's just pasted into the PM.
