Webinar Guides Medical School Applicants through AMCAS Essay Writing Process

Accepted.com’s upcoming webinar, AMCAS Essays for Acceptance, teaches medical school applicants how to successfully draft compelling medical school essays.

LOS ANGELES, California, May 25, 2010 – Creating an effective medical school personal statement poses quite a challenge for most applicants. At some point during the overwhelming process, many will ponder, "What should be included in the essay? What format should be used in constructing the personal statement? And what is the purpose of the AMCAS essays anyway?"

Going through the strenuous application process is confusing enough, and that’s before those dreaded essay questions begin to take over an applicant’s already too-busy life. The stress that accompanies the essay writing process can lead to skipping essential strategic steps and vital information, not to mention missing deadlines.

Accepted's new webinar, AMCAS Essays for Acceptance, gives applicants an opportunity to learn tricks used by professional writers in constructing the perfect personal statement. In this one-hour webinar, Linda Abraham, founder of Accepted.com and medical school admissions expert, will offer tips and advice on how to complete compelling med school essays. The webinar will teach applicants about the purpose of medical school essays, how to choose appropriate essay topics, and how to employ structural elements and professional writing techniques to persuade the admissions staff of the applicant’s worthiness.

“Med school application essays aren’t meant to be boring and dry,” says Abraham. “The admissions committee members want to read an interesting and engaging essay in which they feel they are meeting a real person. A bit of irony or intriguing suspense can be just what a medical school essay needs to introduce the applicant on a human level and send it soaring above its competition.”

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • The three-fold purpose of medical school essays.
  • Key criteria for choosing your topics.
  • The popular genre the personal statement most resembles.
  • Four structural elements that engage and persuade.
  • Four writing techniques that pros use, that you should use too.

Applicants should attend AMCAS Essays for Acceptance webinar to start their journey to top medical school programs.
