An integral part of the medical school application is a personal statement that explains a candidate's motivation and suitability for a career as a physician. Many schools also require applicants to answer secondary questions about a variety of topics, including their personal background and clinical experience. Clearly, in a large pool of talented applicants, persuasive and well-written essays can give a candidate a strong competitive edge. Nevertheless, many applicants struggle with the process because they are uncertain about what to write. Before you tackle something this important, we recommend that you take the time to read several essays that worked.

101 Medical School Personal Statements That Made a Difference (ISBN 9781933819631) presents 101 essays that enabled their authors to gain admission to medical school. By design, they include more than 20 different topics, including the candidates' goals, personal background, clinical and research experience, notable accomplishments, contribution to diversity, and motivation to become a physician. The selection also includes successful responses to being waitlisted and separate addendums to explain a disappointing GPA or MCAT score.

Collectively, these statements show the many ways that candidates have presented themselves to the committee in a creative (and effective) manner. They also show the caliber of writing that is expected at U.S. medical schools. Before you write your own statement, take the time to read several sample essays from students who have already accomplished what you are trying to do.

See what writing styles, themes and personal revelations impressed the committee and won admission for their authors to the most prestigious medical schools in the world. Use them to gain insight into your life experiences and to write your own compelling personal statement. For something this important, why leave your essay to chance?
