How We
Can Help

You have likely heard that the personal statement may not help you, but can definitely hurt you. When surveyed by the AAMC, program directors rate the Personal Statement as one of the top 5 influencers used in the process in choosing their candidates to interview and rank, along with step scores, letters of recommendation and MSPE. Now with the USMLE step 1 becoming pass/fail , and the elimination of the USMLE clinical Skills exam, you need an even more robust and well written personal statement to get interviews.

What we do:

Up Load your document

After selecting a Personal statement product you will be prompted to upload your draft.  If you have not written one yet, read about starting your PS.  When you ready ,log in and upload your document.

Revise, return and Repeat

Following our fist draft sent back to you, we will do this twice more.  

If you need more revisions we have options for additional edits, or unlimited edits. 

You can bundle the editing with other services to get the most support for your application at the best price. 

We do not write your personal statement for you from scratch.  While this is easy for you, it does not help you match into your position.  Your statment needs to complement your whole application and is not a standalone product.  It needs to come from you.  After reading through your first draft, we will help you express all your thoughts, guide structure, and ensure a quality PS, help cut it down or build it up, but it must start with you. 

It Needs to come from you

What we do not do

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal Statement AKA: Cover letter

Your writing a Cover Letter

It is a big misnomer that we call the essay about yourself a Personal Statement.  Sitting down to write, this name conjures up a host of personal feelings and stories that have nothing to do with you you are as a doctor.

It is your Cover Letter.  It is the letter to your new employer showing them who you really are as a doctor, and as a person.  It must showcase your success, your ingenuity, your uniqueness, and why you are the best option for their position.

Making this transition and writing well is not taught in medical school, and you do not have the time to learn it now. We are here to help you shine above the rest with an outstanding statement.
