Hi everyone, This isn't a post where I am changing from pre-dental to pre-medical because I needed a back up or anything. I just came to this sub-forum because I know that there are several people here that are willing to help, including some of the admission committees for medical school. Perhaps some people here will have a better knowledge of personal statements than I do. I am a Texas resident and will be applying to dental schools through TMDSAS. Some of you may be familiar with the required prompts. One of the required prompts involves with personal characteristics. Here is the prompt: Learning from others is enhanced in educational settings that include individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Please describe your personal characteristics (background, talents, skills, etc.) or experiences that would add to the educational experience of others. Can you talk about overcoming adversity for this question? Thanks!
