    Should a personal statement have a title?

    I'm pretty sure the people reading it know that it's your personal statement.

    If you mean should it have some kind of creative title like, "I am not Dr. Kavorkian," I'm pretty sure it's not necessary either.

    I didn't title mine last year; pretty sure it's the norm not to.

    Do NOT title it. It's folksy and out of the norm for med school apps. Your PS isn't like a research paper that needs a title.

    yeah you definitely dont need a title. Save the character spacing for another line that you might need in the paper
