  1. This is copied from paadmissions "Ask a PA Admissions Director." I found it hiding in the bowels of that forum (page 81), and I figured placing it here would make it very handy for those perusing personal statements and seeking advice. Posted 20 May 2014 - 02:46 PM Hi guys! I've put together some hints for writing a good personal statement below. These hints were gathered from several medical school websites and from our own experience with our program. Hope this helps! The personal statement is required as a part of any application to PA school. Many applicants make writing a per
  2. I am looking to submit by tonight and would appreciate the help. I would prefer if you are a PA, work at the pa school, admissions, or something of this sort but all help is definitely welcome. Please PM me if you can provide some assistance cMore
  3. I'm looking for feedback on my personal statement. Any feedback and harsh criticism is welcome!!!! Here is it: Junior year preseason was approaching as fast as my previous two years of college had flown by. I spent all summer preparing myself to finally play on the soccer field as a starter, but what I didn’t expect was the whirlwind of events that led to the end of my collegiate athletic career in soccer and track. It all started with what the athletic trainers thought were muscle spasms due to overuse and possible dehydration from the hot and humid weather, but it turns it out wa
  4. I was wondering if there is any site that can review my PS for me?
  5. Would anyone be willing to read over my personal statement and share your thoughts with me?
  6. Hi everyone, As I excitedly await to begin the PA program I will be attending this fall, I realized that I will have some spare time to help Pre-PA individuals with their personal statements. I hope to provide some insightful feedback. Forewarning: It may take me a while to get back to you all, but I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. I will probably stop reading personal statements and giving feedback around July. I know how stressful it is to write a stellar PS. A PS is crucial in setting you apart from the many applicants out there competing for the select few spot
  7. I've been getting a fair amount of questions lately. Just to clarify: YES. I will help you with your personal statement. No need to ask! No I wasn't an english major, and nor have I been on an ad comm or anything (hopefully I will be one day in the future). I am simply a PA-S with UNTHSC class of 2018 (woot!), and I have no problem reaching out to PA hopefuls and future colleagues. Plus I'm a total nerd and don't mind doing this type of thing. Please note: I will give honest criticism. It may come across as harsh or brutal, but my intention is not to insult anyone. I will reply fairly
  8. Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to review my essay.
  9. Hey guys, I would really appreciate any thoughts and/or critiques about the flow and overall theme of my statement. Is there anything missing or not well expalined? The door flew open and slammed against the adjacent wall. I entered a darkened room where I could only make out the outlines of other patients and hear the noise of chatter and children crying. As my eyes adjusted to the sharp contrast from the glaring sun outside, I slowly made my way to the counter. “Sign in,” said a voice and I looked down to see a chewed-up pin and a pile of torn paper. I wrote my name and date of birth and
  10. I hope this is it! I am now below the character limit and I feel that I have included everything I wanted to portray, I just need some grammar nazis to find my mistakes!!! Thanks for any help :) **PS- if there's something you think needs more clarification or rewording, please tell me** As a teenager without health insurance, I spent many years ignoring symptoms or making do with remedies I already had at home. My go-to was some leftover menthol cough drops in my tea to help open my sinuses and soothe my throat. Thankfully, I was generally healthy and could manage by going to the health de
  11. Hi, I'm a first time applicant and I really don't have anyone to read my statement so I'm reaching out to you for help. I'm over my character limit my 809 and I can't find where to cut. I'm also not sure if I'm going the right direction with this statement. I appreciate any comments!! As a teenager without health insurance, I spent many years ignoring symptoms or eking by with whatever remedies I already had at home. Sure, when these methods did not work, I was forced to see a doctor, however, this was rarely the case. Thankfully, I was generally healthy and could manage only going to my h
  12. You guessed it! I am a first time applicant and you guys are the only ones that can help me with critiquing my personal statement. Im actually pretty surprised I stayed under the character limit for my rough draft. Please look it over and tell me how bad it stinks! The door flew open and slammed against the adjacent wall. The room was dark and all I could make out were figures and the noise of chatter and children crying. As my eyes adjusted to the sharp contrast in darkness from the blaring sun outside, I made my way to the counter. “Sign in,” said a voice and I looked down to see a
  13. Hey everyone! Katie from Alabama here. I am an RRT (2 years experience) trying to get into PA school. I am struggling with this personal statement. I somehow ended up writing TWO... they are completely different (in my eyes) I would love any input you guys have as to which one the admissions committee may value more! I'm not exactly looking for help editing them (though I would gladly accept because I definitely need it) I am just trying to decide which one is worth me continuing to work on...Thank you so much!! -Katie PS # 1: My interest in medicine began at a young age. I was
  14. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! "To say I was an accident prone child is an understatement. I frequented doctors’ offices and emergency rooms for a variety of injuries and ailments. I remember staying home sick from elementary school, curling up on the sofa to watch marathons of “Medical Mysteries” and “Trauma: Life in the ER”. My squeamish parents were somewhat disgusted by my gruesome choice of entertainment and were puzzled by my infatuation with medicine. Even so, my interest and enthusiasm for medical care persisted. In 2006, after I was involved in a ser
  15. Good morning all, I got stuck in a story and I need a little help hacking into it. I cant seem to do it on my own. Any help is appreciated!!! I first met Marcus a little over 2 years ago when he and his family were new to our clinic where I work as a clinical research coordinator (CRC). They were desperate to know why 8 year old Marcus wasn’t growing; his younger sister towered above him. As loving siblings often do, they were constantly tackling each other to the floor while their mother and Dr. Wright were talking. “Stop it! Stop it or we’re not got to GameStop!” You have to unde
  16. This is my second draft and I would really appreciate any feedback possible! Thanks! The CBC showed an abnormally high white blood count and a conversely low count in both red blood cells and platelets. As she approached the reception desk, her hands were shaking and her eyes were dilated. At 23 years old, the woman was remarkably weathered and fatigued. After providing me with her name and appointment time, she stared at me with curiosity as she inquired about my age and purpose of being there. Providing a quick synopsis of my interest in medicine and desi

  20. So, I'm pretty pleased with how my essay has evolved. This is draft number...8? 10? Ugh. Who knows. But I'm under the character limit, and now I've simply looked at it too much!! So much so that I can't even figure out how to formulate a proper conclusion. Please help! Just write the damn last paragraph for me. I've used up all my editing energy. I've put in red all the things that I'm kind of iffy about; debating if they are are necessary or if they don't bring anything to the table. Thanks for your feedback folks!!! “Will you go to nursing or medical school?” Growing up in a Filip
  21. This is not complete. I'm stuck and would appreciate some direction. Please feel free to give whatever feed back you may have. I know I should have a lot coming! I feel like I have a good start, but I'm not sure where to go from there. Thanks for reading! (X's used to maintain anonymity) I excitedly wheeled my lab cart through the hospital wards; anxiously anticipating what my future as a medical professional would entail. “Would patients like me? What if I hurt them? I hope I can answer all of their questions,” I thought to myself. As I approached a patient room, I had
