I need a well written and sophisticated essay written for the entrance of pharmacy school for the Fall 21 admission.
Few things about me:
I am a pharmacy Tech (9 years + experience)
Work experience as a tech Retail pharmacy, specialty pharmacy, infusion pharmacy, hospital pharmacy.
Volunteer experience as a English teacher (teaching immigrants English)
Do start early Be sure you begin writing a month or so before you plan to submit your application. You dont want to be pressed for time. Whatever you do, dont rush!
Do use proper grammar and punctuation You may want to brush up on the basics of writing to gain knowledge of correct use of the English language. You dont want to turn in a statement that is full of grammatical errors and punctuation mistakes.
Do structure it correctly You should format your personal statement in a way that catches your readers attention immediately. How can you capture their interest in your first paragraph? This may be your only opportunity.
Do allow your reader know who you are If this means revealing personal stories or emotions, then dont be afraid to do so. The personal statement is your monologue to the admission committee. Tell them who you are and what you are all about.
Do show your commitment You know how difficult the path is that lies ahead. The admissions committee needs to know that you realize years of struggles are ahead, with the actual practice of pharmacy being your only reward. This unique profession is reserved for people who are committed to excellence. Let the committee know that you realize the path ahead is sometimes demanding and toilsome, but also let them know that pharmacy will be rewarding for you. If you find this not to be true, reconsider your application.
Do relate to your reader Take innovative life experiences and relate them to how you hope to progress in this profession, and your reasons for doing so. Many pre-pharmacy students tend to do certain activities, either volunteering at a pharmacy or working in the local hospital during the summers. Perhaps you even shadowed a pharmacist during your college career. While that is admiral, dont talk in simplifications about your experience. Pick one unique story, and tell it well.
Do organize your essay Introduce yourself in the first paragraph, and decide what theme (or themes) you plan to cover. Cover each topic concisely, and conclude each theme paragraph with a strong conclusion. Your statement should flow easily from topic to topic. Your ending should tie the entire essay together, and do so in a smooth manner. If you are unable to summarize, you may have included too much content and should refocus on a few main ideas.
Do proofread Five times is not too much. Read through the statement a couple of times for content and structure. Have friends and family read your essay, and ask them to offer comments. Have your college English professor, or someone who is knowledgeable about writing, review it for grammar and punctuation. Before you send your statement to the admissions committee, look at your use of the English language. This sounds easy enough, I know, but remember, inadequate proofreading can be disastrous.
Dont regurgitate your transcript Remember, they have already looked at it. Also, they can look at it again at any time.
Dont stray from your topic Be specific, concise, and direct. You have a subject in mind, so dont stray from telling your story precisely.
Dont add filler and unnecessary information You may feel that you need to add content to your statement to make it appear longer. This is what writers call filler. So, when you are tempted to add filler DONT.
Dont rush Give yourself several months, and revisit your essay after completion. Put it in your drawer, and read it again a week or so, when you are rested and have a block of time to sit down and relax while reading it. Then, read it as though you are learning about someone else, and judge the essay from that viewpoint. Are you interested in getting to know the person who wrote this? If not, start again.
Dont include academic successes that do not pertain to pharmacy If you have achieved some unusual academic success that is relevant to your aptitude and desire to attend pharmacy school, be sure to include that. However, if you won the fifth grade spelling bee, by all means, leave that out.
Dont embellish or use others work Avoid hyperbole or plagiarism. The admissions committee members can see through this, and they always put your essay through a plagiarism program to check for use of others work.
Dont talk about controversial topics The personal statement is no place for topics that are of questionable nature. You do not want to alienate someone who has a different perspective than you.
Dont discuss emotional experiences If you relate an emotional experience, assure that you do so in a professional manner. Also, if you do not feel that you can rehash this during your interview, dont write about that experience.
Dont make excuses for anything Committee statement reviewers will not be impressed with your excuses, as your excuses do not excuse you.
Dont apologize for past mistakes or underachievement The personal statement is your chance to shine and present your positive aspects. Dont make the mistake of appearing regretful.
Dont use clichs The reader will view this as a poor attempt to appear entertaining. Clichs are so clich.
Dont talk about money If thats why you are entering the pharmaceutical profession, realize that this will make you look bad overall. Pharmacy is not that lucrative, and that should not be the reason for your quest for entry into this line of work.
Dont underestimate or overestimate the pharmaceutical profession Pharmacy is stressful. Dealing with patients is frustrating. A pharmacist is NOT a doctor. The leaders in this field pride themselves on discipline, dedication, ability, and humanity. Dont go into pharmacy looking for an easy career you will be in for a real shock!
