Your Personal Statement Is The Most High Yield Part of Your Medical School Application
Your personal statement can make or break your chances of getting into medical school.
Nothing will give you a better pay off per hour spent than your personal statement. You already spent thousands of hours on your GPA and hundreds of hours on your MCAT. Now is not the time to slack off with your medical school essay.
If you’re an average applicant, make yourself slightly less average by having an amazing personal statement. It can elevate an otherwise lackluster applicant or it can ruin a high stat applicant.
You’re competing against 50,000 premed students who want to get in just as bad as you or even more.
It is very rare that you will be exceptional compared to everyone else who is applying, plus you all have similar stats while participating in the same extracurriculars:

This is why you need to put extra effort into your personal statement so that your medical school application outshines everyone else who is applying.
Hi, I'm Dr. Jason Spears.
I'm the founder of DoctorPremed and a recent medical school graduate. Personal statement writing is my "superpower" and I look forward to helping you compose an essay that leads to your acceptance.
Writing Your Way to Your Medical School Acceptance
All the edits have finally paid off.
It took more effort than what you expected but you were able to submit one of the best medical school personal statements of your life.
And now your life is forever changed.
You’re going to be a DOCTOR!
One phone call from an unidentified number changed everything. You picked up the phone and heard these words, “On behalf of the Admissions Committee, I am excited to offer you acceptance into medical school…”
You’re in shock.
Running around like a five year old, jumping up and down, yelling, and shouting. Reality slaps you in the face as you realize, “I’m going to be a doctor, I can’t believe it but I’m actually going to be a doctor.”
Time to share the awesome news with everyone.
You call your parents first. Dad who is usually stoic actually shows emotion while your Mom is screaming and crying tears of joys. Your parents are so proud of your accomplishment of getting into medical school.
They can now brag about raising a DOCTOR!
Geez, Writing a Personal Statement for Medical School Sucks... It Isn't Easy At All
You’ve been avoiding drafting your personal statement for weeks (really months) now.
As a premed you’re used to gritting your teeth and grinding out the work in hopes of getting into medical school.
But the personal statement for medical school is a different beast.
The directions are vague.
Plus how are you going to tell your entire life story in only 5,300 characters? There are a ton of small pieces that add up to what makes you want to go into medicine but you’re struggling with how to articulate this.
Are AdComs really going to decide your fate with just one medical school personal statement? How can this be fair?
You excel in math and science but the thought of having to write a medical school essay to prove your worth as a future doctor seems like punishment.
Here you are staring at a blank screen and it’s just not that easy getting started. It certainly is a low point when you think anything would be better than writing your personal statement.
Heck, studying for the MCAT doesn’t seem so terrible right now.
Okay, when you’re thinking about the MCAT you know something is off. You douse yourself with cold water and wakeup to reality recalling everything you’ve endured to reach this point.
The premed years were a grind of sheer exhaustion with one hurdle after another. You scraped through organic chemistry and physics. And yes, even took the MCAT and now you’re stuck on a personal statement.
This is ridiculous.
You just need to get this essay done. It would suck to let your parents down because you couldn’t piece together a personal statement which you have complete control over. It’s very simple, write an amazing personal statement and get into medical school.
Imagine how angry and disappointed you’d be in yourself if you don’t become a doctor all because of your medical school personal statement!
Good Enough Won't Earn You A Medical School Acceptance
It’s not like you haven’t been trying when it comes to your personal statement.
You’ve put in plenty of work but it isn’t coming together.
You tried on your own to the best of your abilities.
After failing on your own you turn to the internet in desperation.
There’s a ton of stuff about how to write a personal statement. You reflected on why you want to be a doctor but you’re still stuck.
Nothing seems to be getting you closer to a polished medical school essay.
Then you stumbled upon an idea.
Why not survey family and friends asking, “What would make me a good doctor?” questions to fuel the writing process. This didn’t go as planned as you got a few decent answers but nothing to help you write an amazing medical school essay.
As you review what you’ve come up with there’s a lingering feeling that something is missing.
Now you’re on a search to find someone, anyone who is willing to read your personal statement. Maybe trade essays with another applicant online and provide feedback to each other.
Please stop. This is the blind leading the blind. They’re just as lost as you are.
Did it ever cross your mind that you’re trading your personal statement with someone who you’re in direct competition for getting into medical school? Can you even trust this random online stranger is going to give you feedback that is in your best interest? Or worse yet, they’re actually out to steal your personal statement.
Now that you’ve ruled out getting feedback online you may be tempted to ask some trusted advisors to take a look at your medical school essay.
They agree but it leads to problems.
One advisor says it’s good while another has an entirely different opinion. No one is on the same page. This personal statement writing business is turning into a nightmare.
There’s too much at stake.
This one medical school essay is going out to each and every medical school you apply to so it has to be done right. There won’t be any chances.
If you have a mistake in your personal statement your reader will think you are careless and not serious about actually getting into medical school. You won’t even be able to argue your case as your reader will immediately toss your application in the rejection pile because there’s more than enough flawless essays for them to choose from.
There goes your chance of getting into medical school and becoming a doctor all because your personal statement was not up to par.
This doesn't have to be you.
Wouldn’t be awesome to know you’re writing a medical school personal statement that ticks off each and every criteria AdComs are seeking in applicants who they will actually admit to their medical school?
You can be that medical school applicant today even if you are a horrible writer and have no clue on how to compose a medical school personal statement.

How Personal Statement Editing Works
This is a customized personal statement editing service.
You submit a complete or nearly complete essay.
I will then review it to get a sense of who you are as an applicant and what you are trying to convey to the admissions committee.
From here I will provide you feedback and suggestions on how to improve your personal statement. Your first draft will look nothing like your final essay by the time we are finished however you will retain your “voice” and the key elements of who you are.
My edits come in two formats depending on how polished of a writer you are:
- Theme/Content: this is a global overview working on content, structure, and theme.
- Detailed: where I go line by line correcting grammar, punctuation, tense, word choice, etc.
All I can tell you is that you’ll be blown away by the final version and in awe at just how well that story you had hidden within has materialized into a masterpiece.
There’s a reason why students who work with me get accepted into their top choice programs. I know how to get the attention of AdComs when crafting your medical school essay.
What Will NOT Happen With Your Medical School Essay
This is an ethical service and there will be no cheating.
I will not write your medical school personal statement for you.
You have to make an honest attempt at drafting an essay so I can learn about you and help you make the necessary changes so that your personal statement shines.
Ultimately, the personal statement is yours and I help you think outside the box, provide insights from the perspective of the admissions committee along with helping you avoid common pitfalls that can totally derail your chances of getting into medical school.
Just as authors use editors that is what I will be to you but will not do the actual writing of your personal statement.
You will get plenty of direction and feedback to ensure your essay will withstand the scrutiny of even the harshest critic on the admissions committee.
Yes You Have Other Options
I am giving you direct access to me and my expertise in writing medical school personal statements that lead to interview invites.
I’ve been editing personal statements for years and all my students have been extremely successful.
What would it cost you to learn this yourself? Have you put in the years of premed coaching, writing and sitting on admissions committees to actually know what makes for a mediocre vs compelling essay?
I already mentioned what you can try in an Hail Mary attempt to write a personal statement for medical school. However, when this essay can make the difference between getting in or not I wouldn’t leave it to:
Trading With Other Applicants

Let me help you put together an amazing personal statement that makes the unique case of why you should be admitted to medical school and what you will bring to the friend of medicine. I will help you earn your medical school acceptance with your personal statement.
Take Control Of Your Medical School Future
You’ve done everything asked of you to be in a position to be even applying to medical school.
You’ve successfully overcome each and every obstacle thrown your way.
That medical school acceptance offer practically has your name written on it already.
However, you just need to write an essay that sells yourself to the admissions committee so that they give you an interview. This is a tricky space to be in because this one essay you write goes out to each and every medical school you’ll be applying to.
Can you imagine how one mistake can spell disaster for your entire medical school application and your chances of becoming a doctor?
The stakes couldn’t be any higher.
AdComs are ruthless and unforgiving when it comes to your essay.
They understand you have 100% control of your personal statement so they expect you to go the extra mile and really convince them you deserve to be in medical school. Any mistake that you make is viewed as you being lazy or that you’re not serious about getting in.
But when medical schools receive over 10,000 applications for only 150 spots, any mistake, no matter how small, is grounds for your rejection.
Imagine not getting into medical school because of a typo, sounding like everyone else or simply not giving your reader what they want in your personal statement for medical school.
However, you can work with me and never have to worry about any of this. My students win the medical school admissions race. They get accepted. You deserve to be admitted too. It all starts with your medical school essay so let’s work together, future Doctor!
