Then look at some resources for writing personal statements and get some advice. There are lots of websites which will offer you advice for writing a personal statement but it is best to look at websites from reputable organisations such as UCAS or student advice websites which are well used such as The Student Room. Remember to ask your teachers, friends and family for advice. A good question to ask them is "what do you think makes me different from other people? or "how would you describe me?" because the answers often give you some interesting information that you hadn't thought about. The personal statement is not something you can write quickly so be prepared to think a lot about yourself, your qualities, skills, experience, likes and dislikes. You are unlikely to meet the people who read it so your personality needs to come though on paper; this is difficult.
The Three Common Oversights when writing medical residency personal statements: 1. Not Paying Attention To the Question _ Almost every single teaching hospital poses one or more very specific questions that they want residency applicants to answer. One has to assume that these questions were worded the way they were for a very specific reason(s). Nevertheless, you would be amazed at how many draft personal statements that I get for editing in which it appears that the applicant has not even attempted to answer the specific question(s) posed by the target institution. In fact, most draft statements I receive are generalized essays that fail to address the actual question(s) posed in the target institution's requirement statement. This is an important, if not fatal, oversight.
