Question: Advice on personal statements. Help!!

Does anyone have experience using EssayEdge. com or TheDoctorJob. com for personal statement editing? I'm interested in trying it out, but would like to hear from some previous users first.

I liked Essay Edge, but remember - they don't write for you, they edit! It's expensive, and honestly I don't think it's important enough to pay for. Residencies want to see your board scores, grades, and letters of recommendation. A personal statement most likely isn't even read until after youve been granted an interview. Good luck!
