Personal Statement Editing Service

The Residency Statement Editing Service ensures your Personal Statement will meet and exceed the standards of residency program review committees. Our Editors do more than simply glance over your Personal Statement and offer shallow suggestions. They are trained to comprehensively analyze, restructure, craft, and optimize your Personal Statement.

If you are worried your current Personal Statement is not appropriate or competitive, submit it and get ready to collaborate with your Editor as they transform your draft by correcting grammatical errors, smoothing over rough language, and fine-tuning the format. Your Editor will also let you know if important content is missing or if certain content should be removed.
