    You don't need a good counselor, all you need is a good book. You never know about the quality of counseling you will get from any one person, even if the person is the ex-head of admissions at school X, school X might have a completely different take on the admissions process then every other school out there. There are several very good med school admissions boooks out there, I would suggest going to a Barnes and Noble and not purchasing the books but skimming through a few of them in the book store to get a good jist of what you are supposed to do. Good luck.

    Kent's point is very valid and that was what I did. I bought a few books about writing personal statements. I actually bought two. Let's me give you the titles:

    1. Essays That Will Get You Into Medical Schools; published by Barron's, by Daniel Kaufman, Chris Dowhan, and Amy Burnham.

    2. How to Write a Winning Personal Statement for Graduate and Professional School, 3rd Edition by Richard J. Stelzer, published by Peterson's.

    I think you said that you live in Sothern California. Where in Southern California? If you are close by me, you can come by and I can loan you the above books and/or you can copy them. PM me.
