    If you want, sure, but that'd be a pretty boring autobiography. It should be about who you are, not necessarily a time line.

    This is a time to explain why your stats are poor and what makes you a special snowflake in this world.

    Be creative. I know that undergrad biology departments do not encourage creative writing, but give it a try. You do not have to follow a script. good luck!

    blah

    I say forget the sob story and focus on how you feel you are ready for school this time around. Show them that you want it bad enough and they'll give you a chance

    Heh, I took a creative writing course as a bio major (and shamefully a poetry course as well).

    So putting nude pics isn't a good idea?

    i wouldn't dwell too much on 'faults' or 'poor stats'...rather, explain why they should accept you into their medical school.
