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

Given these challenges, how can you make sure that your personal statement represents you as effectively as possible, in a way that highlights your unique candidacy?
