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 veterinary
school applicant, you don't need us to tell you that you are going through an exceptionally complex and detailed application process. Admissions
requirements vary more from school to school in DVM admissions than they do for probably any other degree program. Your personal statements
play a key role in your admissions outcomes.
The audience for each of your personal statement is the admissions
committee of the veterinary schools to which you are applying.
The purpose of your personal statement is convince admissions committee members that you have the 'soft' qualities they look
for in vet students as well as unique qualities that merit choosing you as a vet student above other applicants.
Admissions committee members begin the process with a good
assessment of the 'hard' skills that qualify you for vet school. They've
seen your transcripts and your resume as well as your GPA and
GRE, MCAT, or VCAT scores. Based on them, they can determine whether you have
the intellectual and academic ability to succeed in veterinary
What they don't know is whether you have the 'soft' qualities
that schools look for in veterinarians. Are you compassionate? Can you handle people as well as you
can handle animals? Could you
explain a medical issue to the owner of a sick animal, and help them make an informed and responsible choice about what to do? Are
you ethical? Would you speak up when needed? Do you have
intellectual curiosity? Are you resilient?
Your personal statements are your chance to answer those questions.
Think of each
statement 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 – but who is approachable as well. 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,
why they should entrust the care of living animals to you,
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 who want to be veterinarians.
It goes without saying that your
statements 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 veterinary school admissions.
