I am a resitting med applicant, and last year I remember there was a fantastic service provided where we could get our personal statements reviewed by successful past applicants/specialists. I was wondering if this still existed as all I can find is the PS builder service, but not one for those who have PS's already built xD. SOrry if im being dumb, and thanks for any help anyone can provide!

You are welcome to post for advice in the ps forum. However, the ps review is now a paid service.

TSR has now closed this service and the only way to get a review is through the new paid review service (costing £75). You can, however, ask us questions about your statement in this forum, but you cannot post any part of your statement here.

It really costs £75? I just stumbled across this thread when it showed up on the main page, so maybe it's been discussed elsewhere, but I thought the main reason for the PS service was so that those who go to non-selective schools and maybe don't have as much access to advice could access some help. £75 seems steep for most students who will find themselves in that position, unless there's help available for those from low income families.

TSR does hope to subsidise the cost for poorer students but are currently working on the logistics of it. A PS help tool has been developed which anyone can use, but unfortunately the free review service is dead.

ByronicHero's reply is as much as we know at the moment. TSR still offers a range of help through this forum (where you can ask questions), its PS Help library and the PS builder. Obviously it's understandable that some people will be disappointed, but there is still a range of support at the disposal of all students.

Thanks for the replies. I find it sad that this means you can only really access the best PS advice available if you have the money to do so, as any help available in the forums (however wonderful) can't really match the one to one PS review service. Obviously I understand the economic reasons behind it, and that people give up their time to review statements and that can't come for free forever (I was involved in reviewing statements for a time when I was at university-before having to delay my studies and therefore having to drop out of the reviewing service), plus TSR isn't a charity, but I do hope that something is done soon to help those who can't afford it access it. If you have the money good PS help is already available, whether through private education or other paid for services, so this is a real shame for me.
