We review more than just your grammar and syntax. We make major suggestions regarding your content and flow.
Our team of medical admissions editors and Dr. Jessica Freedman, MedEdits founder, will transform your admissions documents so they are compelling and tell your unique story.
MedEdits has a deep understanding of your “target audience” and can help you write a medical school personal statement and admissions documents that are captivating and persuasive. Some clients start working with MedEdits by having a one hour Discovery/Brainstorming session when we discuss what topics should be addressed in the personal statement and application as well as other topics related to your candidacy as time permits. Alternatively, a la carte editing services can also be purchased below. MedEdits does not generate written materials on your behalf, but, as part of the editing process, we offer extensive written suggestions regarding what activities, achievements, and personal challenges your written work should address. We suggest how to highlight those experiences, story lines, and topics that medical admissions officers find especially significant. Read examples of medical school personal statements, application entries, and secondary essays in The MedEdits Guide to Medical School Admissions.
We are proud to offer a professional, top-notch editing service for medical school personal statements. Our editors are all Ivy League graduates with extensive experience in our respective fields. We have served on admissions committees and have a firm grasp of the caliber of writing that is expected at US medical schools.
Our editors provide the following services:
1. We will evaluate your statement's content. We will ensure that your statement:
a. Answers the question in a direct and persuasive manner
b. Gives the reader an informed view of your achievements
c. Emphasizes the attributes that medical schools value
d. Flows in a natural style that is easy to read
2. We will provide your essay with a compelling and memorable voice. Admissions officers frequently read more than 50 personal statements per day, many of which sound exactly alike. With more than 100 qualified candidates for every seat in the class, you must capture their attention from the very first word you write. Your statement must be a memorable narrative with vivid language and a strong voice. We will ensure that your introduction immediately engages the reader and provides a good first impression. We will also ensure that your content provides details of your life that are not presented elsewhere in your application. Finally, we will edit your conclusion to ensure that you close the essay on a positive note.
3. We will capture the optimal tone for the essay. Great editing strengthens your voice and presents the best possible aspects of your personality. Our editors will enhance your natural writing style to reflect the confidence and charisma of a successful Ivy League applicant. We will ensure that your tone is positive without being boastful (and that you are perceived as confident, rather than arrogant).
4. We will improve the essay's structure, flow, and readability. Great essays are flawless and on topic. To achieve this standard, we will restructure awkward sentences and omit any unnecessary words, phrases, sentences, or paragraphs. We will also ensure that your essay is cohesive and leads the reader to a strong conclusion. To improve the flow of your writing, we will vary your sentence structure and insert appropriate transitions. We will also verify that your paragraphs signal natural breaks in your thought process and that each is cohesive in its own right. Finally, we will clarify your topic sentences and ensure that you present adequate supporting details.
5. We will fix all grammatical and mechanical mistakes. We will correct all grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, run-on sentences, and fragments. We will also correct word choice errors and catch subtle mistakes, such as the improper use of prepositions and pronouns.
6. We will coordinate multiple essays. Some programs require applicants to write several essays on a variety of topics. We will ensure that each essay presents a different (but consistent) image of your personality and strengths. A well-coordinated essay set has a synergistic effect on the admissions committee: it provides a 360-degree view of the candidate on both a professional and personal basis.
7. We will compare your statement to those of other candidates. Along with our editing services, we will also provide our critical perspective of your essay and compare it to others that we have evaluated. If needed, we will suggest ways that you can improve the essay's overall effectiveness. Our goal is to make you stand out from the crowd and pass that all-important final cut!
