piece of writing has an audience and a purpose.
All Star Essays will help you craft a personal statement
that connects with your audience and moves you toward your
As a medical
school applicant, you have a two-fold writing challenge. Your
primary and secondary application essays have similar audiences
but different objectives.
The audience for each of your essays is the admissions
committee of the medical schools to which you are applying.
Your primary essay will be read at every school. The purpose
in writing the primary essay is to persuade readers that
you are an outstanding candidate for the medical profession.
Each of your secondary essays will be read by only one
committee, the one at the school reviewing your secondary
application. Your purpose in writing the secondary
essays is to persuade your readers that you are particularly
well suited to attend their school, with the ultimate goal of
landing an interview with them.
Admissions committee members begin the process with a good
assessment of your qualifications for medical school. They've
seen your transcripts and your resume as well as your GPA and
MCAT scores. Based on them, they can determine whether you have
the intellectual and academic ability to succeed in medical
What they don't know is whether you have the 'soft' qualities
that schools look for in doctors. Are you compassionate? Can you
explain a technical issue to a non-specialist? Do you have
intellectual curiosity? Are you resilient?
Your essays are your chance to answer those questions.
Think of your essays as a preliminary interview on paper. You
need to project yourself as someone who is confident in front of
others, who can be trusted with life-and-death issues. You want
to show that you can think and communicate clearly and
accurately. You want to convey your personality, to give your
readers an idea of who you are as a person, and why they would
welcome you as a student and future colleague. You want to tell
your readers something that will stick in their minds and help
them distinguish you from the scores of other qualified
applicants applying to the same program.
It goes without saying that your essays must be free of
grammatical errors, misspellings, and typos. There are numerous
people who can help you with editing. However, All Star Essays
goes the extra mile, helping hone your statements, so that they
meet the very high standards of medical school.
