Your challenge: show the admissions committee something unique about you, in just 5300 characters! Convey your passion for medicine, show what kind of person and student you are, and demonstrate what kind of physician you’ll be in the future… No big deal, right? <Gulp>

Don’t worry – It’s not you; it’s that the personal statements are really challenging!

Often, we hear from med school applicants who worry that their personal statements will be too similar to those of other applicants – because they have similar experiences or similar motivations for pursuing medicine. And with so many competitive applicants, that is definitely a concern. You have to stand out.

Given these challenges, how can you make sure that your personal statement represents you as effectively as possible? How can you overcome the challenge of the blank page, and create a successful med personal statement?

From our extensive experience coaching applicants like you to med school success, we’ve learned what works – and what doesn’t – when it comes to personal statements. Our one-hour webinar, The 5-Step Guide to Successful Medical School Personal Statements, is a skills-based roadmap to personal statement success. You’ll learn how to approach your personal statement thoughtfully – so that you won’t be intimidated by that blank page, or by your competition.

The webinar is free, but registration is required – save your spot today!
