    I wanna do medicine too!! I've just finished my draft one and now am tidying up. In the first sentence i wrote, "I had a dream, a dream to become a doctor"




    Joking, but very similar, "my wish to study medicine....blah blah blah"
    GOOD LUCK!!

    Heh, i remember doing my PS last year... good luck writing it!, try to do as many drafts as possible and have LOADS of people look at it

    Start off with something original, though it must contain a reason why you are applying to study medicine... acknowledge that it is not just the course you are applying to, but a life long career... make it flow between sections, each section devoted to something different. e.g W/E and impact it has had on decision, extra activities and how they may help you in uni, how you keep up to date on medical issues... if you have some experience with one medical issue include it and read up on it, easy way to impress in an interview as they will surely as about anything medical you specify... DO NOT INCLUDE MEDICAL TERMS or ANYTHING MEDICAL UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO GO INTO DETAIL DURING AN INTERVIEW...

    Has anyone actually ever heard of a library???

    there are tonnes of books in the dark orficies of a library that will definately hep youwrite your medcine personal statement. they're all great and have everything you need to start writing like: 'why and why not medcine' (they all have this chapter) which describes the diff. reasons people want to do medicine, the advantages, diadvantages etc. some even have interview sections specifically for what to expect at a medicine interview.

    BEWARE: NEVER EVER COPY AND PASTE >>> you will get caught ( unfortunate incidience with friend of mine....lets just say she's frying chips at the local cafe now..)

    you need to 'exude' a personality from your personal statement, so try not to be boring, there are thousands of other kids with the same w/e etc.

    From anywhere, chances are the person you are copying off may have copied someone else and it only increases the risk of making your PS sound stilted
