Getting Over Writer’s Block

Here’s the scenario: You have the personal statement prompt open in one window on your computer and a blank text document open in another window. The cursor flashes at you over and over again for about 15 minutes while you tap your fingers on your keyboard without actually hitting any keys. Uh oh, you have writer’s block.

When writer’s block hits, follow this advice from my article at to overcome it:

“The best way to beat writer’s block is to use a medical school personal statement sample as your guide. Samples allow you to see how other students articulated their own ideas, and sample personal statements written by students that were accepted to medical school will give you some valuable insight into the kind of essay that medical school selection committees are interested in seeing.”
