UPREP Session 2: Writing a Personal Statement
WHEN: Wednesday, December 2nd 6 – 8 PM PST
PLACE: via Zoom - https://uw-phi.zoom.us/j/5537308075
This session’s topic will be: The Personal Statement
DISCLAIMER: You do not need a personal statement at hand to attend this event.
The event itself will consist of a presentation of the personal statement, small group activity, and panelist Q&A. You will have an opportunity to meet and interact with current medical students who like you, have applied to medical schools in the past and want to help you be a successful applicant!
During this session, medical students will be proofreading and editing personal statements, while giving feedback to everyone who joins our session. To accommodate the large number of premeds we expect, we ask that premeds who are interested in receiving feedback on their personal statement (this could be the intro, half a draft, or an entire statement) email us in advance your personal statement firstname.lastname@example.org. These statements will be proofread by medical students prior to the workshop session. We will split participants up into breakout rooms so that medical students can provide feedback to students on their personal statement.
A rough breakdown of our 2hr session can be found below:
6-6:30 pm: Personal Statement Presentation
