The many different ways Mary Kate can help you with your personal statement:

One-on-one direct advising consultation Skype meetings: Through the magic of Skype's "shared screens" and/or Skype and Google Docs used in conjunction, we can discuss and work together on your personal statement to help you create your Best Shining Draft for application submission.  We can start at whatever stage you are in - formative/content discovery, draft writing, content and line edits and revisions, or polishing for final draft completion.  What we do together is FAR MORE than what any editor will do for you.  With every ounce of admission committee insight I've gained from my years of being a pre-health advisor - along with my creative and technical writing skills - I'm here to help you build and write a Super Shiny personal statement that is truly reflective of you are and what you have to offer to your schools of choice and to your future patients!!!  We work together to make sure you truly Stand Up, Stand Out, and Shine in the story you share with and show to your admission committees.  And our goal is to make a lasting positive emotional impact on your reviewers.  We want your personal statement to take your application from the thinking about you pile to the We've got to interview this person, NOW!!! pile!!!
