Avoid Cliches. There are a few standard reasons why people become doctors, and so it is very easy to fall into cliched expressions and ideas. Though it's fine to express a commonly_held notion, try to find a personal way to express it. For example, rather than write "I want to be a doctor because I want to help people," discuss the ways that you have shown your generosity and kindheartedness in the past; bring specific examples__such as your volunteer experiences__so as to avoid a direct (and possibly cliched) declaration of your point. Sometimes cliches are unavoidable; just make sure your essay isn't full of them.
A personal statement is a critical requirement when it comes to applying to the college, university, or graduate school of your choice. Your personal essay will allow the selections board to determine whether you are well_suited to the course or field of study or you have enough experience and interest to make you a good candidate for the slot. At this point in the application, you will no longer be able to do anything about your grades, extra_curricular experience, and your overall academic standing. However, there are some things you can do to make your personal essay stand out from the rest.
