    would writing things down like (examples) "dentistry is my only option in life" or "I don't know what'll do if i get rejected by D-school" would it hurt my PS?

    that's probably not the best way to describe how you feel about dentistry, try another approach :)

    "I don't know what'll do if i get rejected by D-school" This was actually a question that came up in one of my interviews. I would be willing to bet they wouldn't like me if I answered "I dunno what I would do...". I wouldn't put either of these. Like 2THDDS said, try another approach (i.e. passionate, dedicated, etc) not desperate.

    Actions > words. What have you done to show your desire and commitment? Talk about that.

    Do not write that! You would be considered a risk to them. Just say that you are really passionate about this career and that you cannot see yourself doing another occupation.

    It may not hurt, but don't be surprised if a couple of guys/gals (aka chicks) show up at your doorstep with one size fits all straightjacket.

    OP, I personally think it sounds too informal. It's something you could tell a friend, not adcom. Best of luck!

    The title of this thread makes me laugh every time I see it on the board.
