Tips to Writing A Standout Essay

The application cycle will be here before you know it! There are so many aspects to the application, one of the biggest beings essays. Writing them can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be.

I’ve together a few tips to help you get off to a great start.

  1. Start developing your essays way before the application opens. I believe that the essays one of, if not, the most important parts of the application process. Don’t let it hold you back from applying on time.
  2. Know your why. It will be important for you to incorporate your specific experiences that motivate you and qualities of a physician/dentist (ex: communication skills, high-level education, decision-maker, bedside manner) that you find in yourself. Start making your lists now.
  3. “Show, don’t tell.” This is a really important issue that I see so many students not doing, and it in turn makes for a boring essay.

These tips are simply a launching point to get you started. If you want more in-depth explanation and tips, I recommend attending my Essay Development seminar on November 1. As always, you can schedule one-on-one time with me to go over your essays in detail.

Take care,
