Our physician advisors are here for you
A great medical school personal statement starts here
The medical school personal statement is one of the most important parts of your application. Schools use the personal statement to differentiate applicants with similar “stats.” A great essay can get you accepted, while a poor essay will keep you rejected.
We work with you to brainstorm and develop ideas which are unique and bring out your strengths. We work with you on developing your content, portraying your strengths and refining your writing style. We go way beyond grammar checking – our medical school personal statement experts help separate yourself from the pact with in-depth content advising.
MedSchoolCoach physician advisors have served on admissions committees and read hundreds of personal statements, so they know what it takes to stand out.
Our editors are actual physicians who have served on admission committees. That means your essay is being evaluated and edited by people who know medicine and the admissions process inside and out.
Anyone can edit for grammar, and of course we do as well, but we go way beyond. Because our editors know what medical schools are looking for, we dig deep into the content of your medical school personal statement to make it stand out.
Stop at Perfection
We believe that a great essay requires a lot of revision. That is why most of our packages include multiple edits. We will work until you and your editor are happy with your final product!
must read material
Also included in your purchase is our “Guide to Writing the Medical School Personal Statement” written by former medical school admissions interviewers who know exactly what schools are looking for in their applicants. You’ll gain an understanding of how medical school’s use the personal statement in their evaluation process, what makes a good and bad personal statement, and how to write a great personal statement for you. The short guide also includes specifics of the AMCAS Personal Statement and the AACOMAS (DO) Personal Statement. The special feature boxes highlight the most salient points of every chapter. Before you begin writing, this guide is a must read.

f.a.q. about our personal statement editing
We typically utilize email/Word document editing to perform our editing services and give you detailed feedback. If you need to speak on the phone, you are welcome to with our Extensive and Unlimited Packages
Your editor will be one of MedSchoolCoach’s physician editors who have extensive experience evaluating and editing personal statements. Each is a published author with multiple academic publications as well as an exceptional writer.
If you need to brainstorm, simply email us once you’ve signed up and we’ll get started with a brainstorming session!
We do our best to balance real, quality feedback with a quick turn-around. Many other companies can offer a few hour turn around, but ask yourself what kind of quality edits you are getting and from whom in that time. We strive to get you feedback within 72 hours of your submission by physicians (often times, it’s faster than that).
Yes, you are welcome to request an advisor to look over your essay. We cannot always guarantee that they will be available, but we will do our best!
We do not offer “single edit” packages. The reason is because a great personal statement cannot be accomplished in one single edit – anyone who tells you such is lying! We are committed to working with our students to make their application as strong as possible, not simply doing a grammar check and being finished.
