    Hi,

    I was wondering if ppl can get kicked out because of their personal statement? What I mean is if they mentioned something they have actually completed volunteered somewhere but the place they volunteered at refuses to give them a reference. So if someone was to study medicine does the university call up on the references and can they kick you out?

    If you actually completed a volunteer placement there and thats all you have said in your PS, then that is the truth. Whether or not they give you a reference is not relevant. If you said something that was untrue or inaccurate then that would be misleading. the chances of you being caught is minimal.
