    personal statement for residency

    Advertisements



    I will be applying to EM, IM, and FM for match 09. I was wondering for those of you who also apply to different departments, how did you write your personal statement? Does ERAS allow you to submit more than 1 personal statment? I find it hard to write a detail personal experience since my experience from each of these departments were different.

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    No, I'm a US citizen and have average usmle score. Its borderline for EM but decent for IM and FM. My first choice is EM, but the field is so competitve that I wanted to apply for IM and FM for back up. Mainly I want to guarantee a match for 09.

    You said that I can submit different personal statement to ERAS but how do I make sure that the department get the correct personal statement.

    Thanks!

    You can submit three different personal statements. When applying to each program, you assign whichever personal statement you would like to go to that program.
