Your hands are hovering over the keyboard, but the words aren’t coming.
Or maybe they do, but they don’t feel right.
You delete them all and are back to staring at a blank screen.
Don’t worry—this is normal! It’s not easy for people to write about themselves, yet penning an effective and reflective personal statement is one of the best ways to strengthen your chances of getting accepted to your dream med school program.
That’s why we’re hosting a free masterclass entitled How to Write a Compelling Medical School Personal Statement. In this hour-long session, Accepted med school pro Mary Mahoney will discuss the do’s and don’ts of crafting a successful med school personal statement.
Mary has been a graduate school advisor for more than 20 years and we are proud that she is now part of Team Accepted. Prior to earning her MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence and then her PhD in Literature and Writing from the University of Houston, Mary worked as a nurse. She found her passion at the crossroads of Medicine and the Humanities, and has been helping med school hopefuls tell their stories for the two decades since.
As you can see, Mary is uniquely qualified to speak on both med school admissions and creative writing. The synergy of those two things is exactly what you need to make your personal statement really sing. Join us for this free masterclass and absorb her wisdom and insights as you work on your own application.
