personal statement editing

In the 2016 NRMP Program Director Survey, 78% of program directors cited the personal statement as a factor in selecting applicants to interview. 

A powerful and compelling statement can significantly strengthen your application. 

Unfortunately, our experience has shown that statements are often bland and lacking impact. This represents a lost opportunity to impress.

Our goal is to partner with you to create a powerful and compelling statement that makes program directors say, "I really want to meet this applicant."

Utilizing the insight and perspective of Dr. Samir Desai, an expert in the residency match process, and the expertise of our Harvard-trained writing team, we will help you create the high impact statement that you deserve.

FAQ

While a well-written statement can strengthen your application, a poorly written one can eliminate you from further consideration, even if your other credentials are attractive.

It's also common for applicants to submit a bland statement that lacks impact. This represents a lost opportunity to impress the program. We have considerable experience reviewing, editing, and polishing personal statements. Read our FAQs below for more information.

How does your personal statement review and editing service differ from other services?

The process begins with a 30-minute phone conversation between you and Dr. Samir Desai, author of The Successful Match. The goal is to learn as much as possible about you, your background, your credentials, and your interests. To make this conversation as productive as possible, applicants are encouraged to submit any available documents, including CV and personal statement draft (if available).

Why is this phone conversation important?

Residency programs will be evaluating your statement partly based on content. In Dr. Desai's experience, it's common for applicants to leave out important content, information that would be appealing to programs in their decision-making process.  

What makes you stand out from other applicants? In Dr. Desai's experience, all applicants have something that makes them stand out. It may not be apparent to the applicant, but an extensive conversation often sheds light on these factors. Without the initial phone conversation, important content may not be identified and incorporated into the statement.

The phone conversation also allows for discussion of your overall residency application strategy.
