Central Application and Personal Essay – AMCAS Workshop

Preparing the central application is critical. One centralized application is sent to all medical schools. We help you prepare the strongest possible application, including:

  • Biographical and contact information: Essential for contact with medical schools.
  • Academic profile: Courses, GPA, list of all undergraduate schools attended.
  • List of experiences: An opportunity to convey ways in which you have demonstrated passion, compassion, commitment to excellence, communication skills, and other strengths of character.
  • Personal essay: Arguably the single most important page you, as a premed candidate, will write in your life. This is the primary opportunity to convince a medical school’s admissions committee that you are the type of person they would want as their own doctor.
