Here is what people have to say
If you are reading this you might have been like me skeptical and trying to find a way to write a stellar essay for your PA application. I want to share with you my exceptional experience using this service. First, do yourself a favor and BUY the eBook, “The Insider’s Guide to Your Personal Statement.” I read it twice. Once before I started my essay draft and then again during. I cannot stress how helpful the book was in clearly stating what the Admissions Directors are looking for in application essay.
Next, the book reviews how to formulate a proper essay with clear instructions, easy reminders of the writing process, and excellent examples of good and bad writing choices. After several drafts of my essay, I made an appointment to work with Duke Pasquini, one of the authors of the guide, through the internet and via phone to help with editing and my length issue. Duke’s professional experience and kind and straight forward demeanor allowed me to create a winning essay that was an authentic representation of me. Not only did I receive an interview from my top choice of PA school I was accepted a week later into their Physician Assistant Program, Class of 2019. Thank you, “PA Life” for being a part of my journey.Michele Williams
But when faced with the personal narrative prompt “write a brief statement expressing your motivation or desire to become a physician assistant.”, where do you even begin? And how do you carry that momentum forward into a compelling story that will grant you the invitation for an interview?
This book helped me drastically in what was expected in a PA narrative. It covers the things you should do and the mistakes you should avoid. Before reading this book, I felt quite confident in my personal statement. Upon finishing the 90 pages, I realized my essay was great, but not for PA school. I had made several mistakes mentioned in this book, such as focusing too much on certain experiences, and writing excessively about them, instead of focusing on what I have to offer schools.
Although this is the only book that I have purchased on writing a personal statement, I would not hesitate to recommend this for others to read. Herro Chang
The book helps provide direction for students who have not started their essays AND for those who are just beginning. The content is very useful and VERY easy to digest; this book definitely provides all the tools you need to make an impact on your personal statement essay.
Your statement will undoubtedly have the potential to be as persuasive and as clear – an absolute gem of a resource to have in strengthening your application.Sanitha B.
