    man, medicine is the toughest subject in imperial, therefore it is obvious that it will be equally tough to write a personal statement for that subject in order to be accepted into imperial.

    Do a search this has been asked before - you should find some guidence then. Also check out www.admissionsforum.co.uk and www.medschoolguide,co.uk as they are med specific boards.

    Work experience is good for Medcine. My boyfriend is going to Imperial to do Medcine after his gap year. I read his PS and it included things like:
    MedLink course he went on.
    Shadowing doctors and what he saw/did.
    Voluntary work at the hospital.
    Medical representative for the school.

    Things like that. You can include that you read the BMJ, even if you don't or at least the student one. (i think that's right).

    Hope that helps a little. =)

    My PS was structured as so:

    Opening para: Why medicine and why now (applying as a post-doc).
    Then work experience, voluntary work and what I learnt.
    Then other experiences: stuff I did in College and what I learnt
    Then how I unwind: the usual blaaahhh and the unusual
    Finally closing sentence

    That's the same structure as mine, and I've done my structure based around what I've been told by the universities and sites like studential.

    On a vaguely unrelated note; I've been told that my PS is too "floury". I don't know whether this is the same as 'flowery' or not.
