So I am so excited to be applying to PA school this round!
I am working on my supplemental essays and one of the schools I am applying to wants an essay based off of my life experiences. They specifically state that this is different from the personal statement and that it should be based on my life history and experiences in 3200 characters.
I am kind of confused on where to begin..
Is it okay to include things from high school and my childhood?
Also good luck to everyone applying this round!!!
I am currently working on my supplemental essays for the individual schools I am applying to and nearly all of them ask why you chose to apply to that school. I know that I should refer to the mission statement and specific aspects of the program that interest me, but I do not know how to start it without simply saying, "I am interested in this school because..." Would really appreciate any tips or feedback anyone has on this topic!
Thank you in advance!
"Describe in detail how you heard about EVMS?" (unlimited characters)
Alright, maybe I'm just being too paranoid about a simple question here, but...
They already asked "How did you hear about EVMS?" and gave me the option of checkboxing "internet/website" and "EVMS medical school" before the text-box space
They already asked "Why do you want to attend EVMS?", though the answer was limited to 100 words
All I can really say is something along the lines of "I've heard about your medical school from my pre-med friends. When I was checking out the list of CASPA participating programs, I noticed EVMS's PA Program. I then explored your webiste, liked what I saw, and decided to apply." Is that sort of answer good enough? What are they looking for? I normally wouldn't be too concerned about my answer except for the fact that they said "Describe in detail...." and then gave me unlimited character space. O_O
