It’s important that others edit your personal statement. Medical school applicants usually underestimate or overestimate how good their personal statement actually is. Also, many applicants aren’t really sure what a good personal statement entails. Nevertheless, it is important that not too many people read your personal statement because there would be too many opinions and not enough time to incorporate all your feedback. With that being said, you should have 2-4 trusted people to read your personal statement. Medical students, doctors, professors, or friends who are excellent writers are excellent editor options.
