Note: I am not the best writer (to be honest I am awful at it). But I have all the ideas and content, I just need help putting it into words. I am working with a pre-vet adviser on my application but I cannot get my drafts done or they are unreadable. I am looking for someone to help me put my ideas into words. Please contact me at (424) 208-4876 if you are interested. I am trying to get this done quickly and successfully. Here is the prompt below: 3000 characters max (counting spaces)
Your essay should answer why you want to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
Although there is no set of rules mandating what a strong personal statement should include, here are a few tips to help you successfully craft an effective personal statement:
Explain a defining moment that helped steer you toward a career in veterinary medicine. Consider using that moment as the focal point of your essay.
Be original and thoughtful: Discuss how you would contribute to the profession and patient care, all of which will help you stand out from other applicants.
As you are telling us why you want to pursue a career in veterinary medicine, explain why you are a good candidate for veterinary school. Ask yourself—in a pile of 100 applications, would I enjoy reading my statement? Be sure to convey your passion for veterinary medicine in your statement.
Many of you have had meaningful experiences with animals or veterinarians as children and these are important but should only be mentioned briefly.
Your application materials already contain a summary of your accomplishments, so avoid repeating information from your transcripts or reference letters.
Give yourself time to organize your thoughts, write well and edit as necessary.
Ask yourself if this essay is a good representation of your character, ideals, and aspirations.
