  A lot of you are working on your personal statements now. When I was writing my ps for the first time, I googled residency personal statements , found of bunch of tips and sample ps and used a combination of those to make my own ps. And it sucked. It had no direction, flavor or distinctive factor separating me from thousands other IMG. It was too generic.

Maybe, you are stuck too in writing your ps or you think your ps is too generic.

If so, use this strategy to make it a compelling ps that gets the program director interested. It will also help you you answer your interview questions effectively.

It took me a lot of revisions to get my ps right. I wish I knew this when I first started writing my ps. Hope it helps you all.
