When writing a personal statement addressing to any field there are a few common tips or else dos and donts you would first have to consider about.

Good medical students and doctors who are known as one of the most intelligent people in the community always keep their words limited and direct. So as you would be writing a personal statement, do not forget to keep this important point in mind.
Stating about the reasons which inspired you to take this important decision which would change your life is another factor which would add up your points in getting your personal statement in to an unforgettable one.
