Personal Statement ‘Don’ts’

Posted by medliorator on April 7, 2009

  • Don’t rehash all the entries of your CV.
  • Don’t get too fancy with the fonts, style and paper.
  • Don’t tell life stories. This isn’t autobiography.
  • Don’t try to be too dramatic or poetic, this isn’t English assignment.
  • Don’t run of pages, residency directors want a concise statement.
  • Don’t uses clichés to describe why the specialty appeals to you or why you are suited for that specialty.
  • Don’t apologize for bad grades, etc; you may simply call their attention.
