    That's Stage 1, you will then begin to hate the medicine application system as a whole, it will drive you insane and to despair, especially seeing as they like to reject in dec - jan i.e SMACK in the middle of your jan exams.
    Right now, rejection doesn't concern me (well it does really :rolleyes: ) but if I can just put that statement up how I wrote it in word I think it will be strong enough to get some interviews.... I hope.

    I want to basically say I was able to alleviate anxieties, but not to those words, I have used the word "alleviate" not long before this, any other words that would be suitable in that context of talking about people?

    migigate? Not sure. TBH don't worry about posh and fancy words, concentrate on making sure what you write is meaningful and gets across your ability to study medicine. It's much better to use 'normal' words than it is to look like you're trying to impress with your language.

    Do you have to start a thread for every question you have about your PS?

    Anyway you could use; ease, mollify, assuage or relieve for example.

    By the way (note I'm not starting a new thread for this topic), how do I make an indentation to show I'm clearly starting a new paragraph??? I looked at my bro's statement which he printed off UCAS ages ago and that shows indentations that show new paragraphs, how could I sort this out?
