Dear Med. Residency and Med. Fellowship applicants,
There is almost always a fresh and authentic quality to the original draft you send to us for editing. Our goal is to bring out the best in you and to clarify what you have said, while keeping the original feel to your statement. WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO SOUND LIKE ERNEST HEMINGWAY. I can't emphasize enough that your personal statement needs to reflect the best you, but the best AUTHENTIC you, with your own examples and unique experiences. For our questionnaire-based personal statement, we ask you many questions about such examples and experiences, and draw exactly on those for your essay. Bottom line is: You definitely want to live up to your personal statement during your interview. Be yourself, soul search into your bank of experiences, include what made you decide on your particular specialty, and why you think you are suited for that specialty.
Thanks, and we hope to hear from you soon!
