AMCAS Personal Statement: The Biggest Mistake

The biggest mistake I have seen medical school applicants make is not spending enough time on the personal statement. Creating a memorable personal statement cannot be completed in one sitting. You should set aside at least two weeks and preferably a month to write the statement. Expect to go through at least ten drafts. Be sure to allow time for a premed advisor, writing teacher, editor, or admissions consultant to give comments on the essay.

Need help creating a fabulous medical school personal statement?
