So how do I know what universities want? Start by reading about the university, the course you want to study and the "entry profiles" as these will give you information about the type of student the university is looking for. Universities also want the truth so do not lie about your abilities and they want your writing so do not ask someone to write the personal statement for you. Some areas to cover include why you want to study this subject, what your future career plans are, what you do in your free time, what skills you have (academic and non_academic), what's interesting and/ or different about you.
How to write your medical school personal statement: Tell stories Storytelling is how we relate to each other socially. We tell stories to each other all the time. A highly persuasive medical personal statement means that you're pulling the reader into your life story as it intersects your purpose for medicine, the reason why you're interested in pursuing medicine. The most persuasive storytelling you can do is to write about what you have done in your life that relates to your interest in medicine. Okay, so that's persuasion. How to write your medical school essay: High_impact language Use high_impact language. Bottom line for high_impact language is specificity. You want an emotional kind of absolute quality to your speech. You want to elevate your essay so that when you read it you feel like you're not just a little bit committed to your topic, but you're 10ꯠ% committed to your topic. This is really hard for a college student to do because college students don't want to be 10ꯠ% committed to anything.
