    Hi,

    I'm wondering if any of you can help (& reassure!) me. I want to apply for the four year graduate entry medicine at Liverpool for 2013, I am a Registered Nurse with a 2:1 BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing, As & Bs at GCSE and a Triple Distinction in BTEC National Diploma Health & Social Care. I have lots of experience in healthcare and have worked (obviously) in collaboration with Drs, Surgeons, Anaesthetists (I currently work on a Surgical ward) so am aware of the realities of a career in medicine (this is not a decision I have taken lightly). What do you guys think my chances are of being considered?

    I have written my ps (it's still too long though) if anyone would be able to check over it and give me your criticism!

    Thanks!!

    I'll have a look if you want (work is slow and it's quite interesting seeing how other people have gone about it). I can't seem to send you a private message on the forum to tell you where to send it (might be as you haven't posted much). Can you try sending me a private message with your email?

    Same here! I haven't really been given much feedback about my PS at all. If anyone's willing to look over it, then I'd really appreciate it. :)

    I'll look at it if you want. Are you applying for graduate or undergraduate?

    Hello!

    I owe a lot to this forum, and if anyone needs someone to look over their PS I would be willing!

    Best of luck!

    Me too. I found someone on this list who agreed to read my personal statement last year and it really helped. I'll be starting on a GEM course at Leicester this September, so feel free to drop me a line if you want an outsider opinion.

    Hi,

    I'm applying to medicine this year and have just completed the first draft of my PS.

    Was hoping anyone might be kind enough to have a look over it and recommend any modifications or give any general tips?

    Many thanks.

    Hi

    I am a Biomedical science graduate and will be applying to medicine (Graduate entry) this year. I would like to ask if anyone would be interested in reviewing my personal statement.

    Thanks in advance.
