Depends on your package in general....
Your package should try an address all of who you are and what you've accomplished in life. The best way, I think, to approach this, is not limit yourself to the spaces provided on the application form, but type out and answer those questions on a seperate attachment. That will give you a little more room to address questions, such as why you got an F and then only a B in a repeat class.....you want to address all the negatives in the application part itself so it will not taint your personal narrative. That way you can save your personal essay to address WHY it is you want to become a doctor, and HOW will the school and the community benefit from your attendance. You want to keep the essay completely positive, even if it was a negative occurence that made you decide to become a doctor...such as a close relative dying of cancer, or what have you....Remember that it's a narrative and not a resume, so talk about whatever you want, just keep it passionate, positive and short...do not go over a page and a half! Best of luck to ya
