The most useful guide for a real "personal" statement
on 18 October 2012
I have seen several books on personal statement, but this is definitely the best. Divided by topics, it lists and explains the key points to be discussed. Instead of pre-packaged formulas, as some other book does, this one suggests examples and situations in order to stimulate the reader to reflect on his own situation and experience and to tell about it with confidence. This approach is very useful to help you writing write an original ps, which reflects your identity and experience, distinguishing from the others. The authors also indicate which university each personal statement has been written and presented to: this helps to understand what is particularly important for every medical school. I would certainly recommend it.
