You might look at this page and say to yourself, “Oh, it’s just another Personal Statement Course?” It is just going to be someone giving me generic advice to apply to medical school.

I don’t blame you – that’s exactly what I would think if I was reading this for the first time.

If you are looking for generic advice about applying to medical school, this course is not for you!

Instead, this is my tried and tested method that I used to write my personal statement. This helped me get all 4 interviews for medical school and subsequently all 4 offers. 

So why not test it out for yourself. Get free access to one of my lessons, the PERSONAL STATEMENT BASICS. This lesson covers the qualities that admissions tutors are looking for and how you can demonstrate these qualities.
