I will be checking personal statements for medical school applicants for 2021 entry. I provided this service for applicants for the previous two admissions cycles and I received a huge demand and a barrage of positive feedback.
Whilst I will be carrying out reviews, I do highly recommend that you purchase and use the Personal Statement Planner I have designed prior to submitting your personal statement for review. The reason being is that I do not want to be giving generic feedback on common mistakes people make via this service, I would rather give personalised feedback to each person who submits their personal statement. Using the planner will ensure you’ve put in all the key components a Medicine personal statement that are required and also that you have avoided the common pitfalls. This will mean the feedback from the review will be more relevant.
What to expect from a review.
The average time I will spend on a single personal statement will vary depending on how much feedback I’m able to give and the number of suggestions I’m able to make. I do look through it thoroughly and add detailed comment boxes suggesting points for improvement in as many places as possible. This usually takes between 2-3 hours.
The feedback is tailored to the needs of your own personal statement. Some may require help with re-phrasing and others might need help with structure – all of which I’m able to provide as necessary.
The personal statement you submit should not be significantly greater than the UCAS character limit – I can help with cutting down a little, but you should use the 30+ tips listed in my planner to try cutting it down by yourself first.
How much is a review?
I used to offer free personal statement reviews, but unfortunately due to the demand that’s something that’s no longer feasible. I have tried to make my reviews as affordable as possible. I will be reviewing each personal statement by myself so for each review I’ll be sacrificing a portion of my own time. As my time becomes more limited due to my own studies I’ll be increasing the cost of the reviews. I’d like to transparent with you all about this and thus share how the price of submitting a personal statement for review will vary over the months:
Before September: £15
September + October: £20
What have previous students said?
Here are a sample of the testimonials from students who got their personal statements reviewed using this service:
I submitted my daughter’s PS for your review with only 3 days left, and you did an amazing job to set aside time to review it quickly, and revert within 24 hours as requested. The quality of feedback given was excellent… very specific and constructive in terms of sentence structuring, content organising and overall theme building. The feedback was detailed, and almost a line by line review. Honestly, one of the best reviews I have seen… and modestly priced. THANKS A MILLION !Basker R
Thank you so much for your feedback on my personal statement! I would definitely recommend getting the planner as it is so helpful for getting you started and for tips on what to include/not include. The advice I received was brilliant and has helped me to re-draft my personal statement so that I feel confident in sending it off. I liked how throughout the planner and in the feedback I was given, I always given the choice to take the advice or not, and encouraged to keep it personal. The feedback was not at all generic. Can’t recommend the service enough!!Libby
I cannot recommend this highly enough! Despite me only having 3 days it was completed within a day – thank you so much for pushing it forward and spending your entire evening on it. The review is very indepth and detailed; not only do you get line for line comments (with suggestions of examples) you have overall comments and suggestions at the end. The communication is also great and very quick I am so happy with this; it has helped me improve my personal statement considerably. Highly highly recommend, for only £20 you receive an amazing quality review which is of better quality than most £75 ones. THANK YOUMaryam K
I could not recommend this personal statement review more! The comments were very detailed and thoughtful, with additional comments at the end for general advice and ways to improve. Feedback were also very encouraging which gives you the confidence that you’re on the right track! The response was also so quick especially with the deadline approaching! For only £20 this is an extremely high quality review!Isabella H
This was the best decision I made in writing my personal statement. Intensely thorough comments and advice to improve the wording and structure helps so much. I definitely advise having a re-review once you’ve made amendments (discount code was provided) as the old and new statements are actually compared so you know whether to add old bits in etc. Super fast service and so easy to communicate with. If I have to re-apply, I’ll use this review service again 🙂Nell
