    I couldnt help but notice that it says in the new revised application tips to start working on your personal statement right after you take MCATS. I was wondering, how do you know what the personal statement will be prior to the date where you submit your application? Is the personal statement question the same every year? Or does the personal statement not have a question involved but is pretty much anything you want to write about? Thanks!

    There's no specific question. Just write about whatever you like. That's why it's called the "personal" statement. Good luck!

    The personal statement is your opportunity to tell something about you that your grades, MCAT and extracarrics do not. Be creative, but be honest. More than your grades or test scores, this will be the thing that will probably come up during an interview.

    I would suggest 40 essays that will get you into MEd School

    It helped me see what these schools might be looking for.

    Most of the people go into Harvard in this book and the essay are well written

    Good Luck

    AK :p
