The entire college admission process is grueling and psychologically taxing, but little is worse off than writing the personal statement for college applications. At first, you may think that the personal statement for college is going to be easy; just sit down and write a few words about what inspires you, or what you want to accomplish, etc and that's it. However, personal statements for college are more than that. You see, the fact is that when you are in high school, you probably have not much to do as far as writing is concerned. You could easily breeze through on the five paragraph essay, and write an endless series of meaningless papers, getting straight A's, as well as they are properly organized and formatted.
Stay Focused on your Theme. Before you begin your personal statement, decide what point or theme you want to get across. Make sure the entire essay revolves around that point by editing out any sentences that may lead the reader astray. Though you may be tempted to share a lot of different information about yourself in order to give the admissions committee a complete picture, it is more effective to highlight one revealing, important aspect. Pick something about yourself that you feel makes you stand out from the crowd and is related to your decision to become a physician.
