I am currently composing my personal statement and want to get some feedback from you wonderful and generous SDN members. Here is the abstract. From a home with 100% disabled alcoholic veteran dad. I was the first male in the family to ever graduate high school. Went on to local CC and spent two years earning a mighty 1.7 GPA in social science. Took a break from school and went back earned a 3.6 at CC, transfered to a 4-yr. I completed 2.5 years at the 4 year year in 3 semesters. I earned a 3.5 and won my program honors for my class. Then went on to get masters and into a PhD program where I earned a 3.5 and won 2 prestigious fellowships. Along the way gt married had 3 babies and work as well to enable my wife to stay at home with our babies. Then I would move into what dental school means to me and how i will contribute to the school and the profession. Thanks for taking the time.
