Why do you want to be a ________?
The personal statement is a great way for students to separate themselves from other applicant. There are many different ways to approach the personal statement, and students are encouraged to begin working on it as soon as possible as it can be used to help a student understand their own motivations. As the student continues through their pre-health activities, their statement will change as they gain a greater understanding of the field.
In addition to the initial statement, supplementary applications often request additional statements. While these might not always be mandatory, applicants should answer or at the least acknowledge these statements.
Where can I go for help?
Family members, faculty, and the prehealth advisor are all good resources to help review your statements. The Math and Writing Center in 222 SSB can also be a good resource to have an impartial person give you feedback.
