I was sitting here thinking about whether or not I should write a completely new personal statement or if would be alright if I used parts of previous personal statements before? I ask this because, really, the core of why I want to be a PA has not changed. I have for sure done a lot more to improve my application (retook a many prerequisite courses and improved my GPA, gained tons more healthcare experience in community health and the underserved, volunteer experience at my local children's hospital, and improved my GRE scores).
Would this moreso be weaving that additional experience into my statement? Also to note, the parts I want to keep would be why I want to become a PA, I'd totally rewrite a patient care experience example, and add those additional improvements. Plus my previous statement addresses why I had a less than stellar GPA in the past, but how I've improved my grades.
Thank you in advance!
