It’s never been harder to get into medical school.  Application essays are  the last step in a complicated process, requiring years of rigorous study and incredibly hard work.  All medical schools—whether in Canada, the United States or abroad— receive hundreds of applicants with high GPAs and MCAT scores, but they only grant a limited number of interviews.  

That’s why your essays are so important: they offer a chance to show admissions officers why you deserve to be chosen over other equally talented applicants. You must express your passion for medicine, and show why a particular school is a good fit for you.  And most importantly, your essays need to provide evidence that you possess the strength of character and intangible personal skills needed to become a good doctor.
