Application season for the 2020 is under way! Struggling with your personal statement? Your CV? Did your attending(s) ask you to write your letter of recommendation for yourself? I can help!

I am a professional writer who has already assisted countless medical students with these frustrating, time-consuming documents. My wife, who secured her residency position in the 2018 match, lends her input whenever necessary.

In order to get started, please reach out to me via email at josh@personalstatementman.com with as many details as possible about what you'd like.

Need something else? Perhaps you're applying to a fellowship or even applying to medical school. I can assist with that stuff too - just ask!

***Please note that any projects requested AFTER 8/15 do NOT come with an in-depth revision. If you want big changes after my first draft, you will be responsible for doing them yourself! After which, I will be glad to perform two or three quick edits with minimal feedback (unless something is glaring).

Current turnaround time for any project:14-16 days

          *As time permits, I do offer 2-4 day expedited turnaround for an additional 25%. Ask about it!

Personal statement services:

COMPLETE STATEMENT FROM SCRATCH: $289 - I will write the entire thing for you. The only thing you have to do is fill out a questionnaire and email it back to me.

REWRITE$159 - Did you write a draft that has everything you want in it but it just doesn't sound right? Do you want it to flow better and sound more professional? Keeping the same content, I will completely rewrite what you already have. I'll just make it sound prettier.

FROM SCRATCH/REWRITE HYBRID: $225 - This is a popular one. In between the two above options, I will use your existing content and whatever you want to add to it to combine them into a new draft.

EDITS AND FEEDBACK$89 - If you have a draft that you're already comfortable with, I will edit it and offer you detailed feedback.

Letter of recommendation service:

COMPLETE LETTER WRITTEN FROM SCRATCH: $89 - You fill out a quick questionnaire and I write it. It's that simple. I do not use any templates so each letter I write is completely personalized.

CV service:

START TO FINISH CV ASSISTANCE$169 - Have no idea where to start? Overwhelmed? I will send you a questionnaire to fill out. Once it's completed, I will assemble all the information for you into a polished, very beautiful document that will be ready to submit.

COMPLETE REFORMAT, CONTENT EDITING, AND SUGGESTIONS$89 - Email me what you have for your CV and I will make it look pretty and presentable. There will be easy to see highlighted areas for you to expand upon or add to at your leisure. When everything is complete, I will go back over it, line it all up accordingly, and advise you if there's anything else that needs addressing.

*****REVISION POLICY***** This is IMPORTANT so please make sure you read and understand it fully!

Included in the cost for any from scratch or hybrid project is one full in-depth revision. I am happy to make big changes if you've changed your mind about the content or a certain paragraph doesn't sound quite right for you at that point. Also included are 2x quick cosmetic edits for any changes you take upon yourself to make. Most of the time, one draft and maybe one revision or edit is more than enough for my clients to be satisfied.

 

Any of these revisions/edit must be requested within 10 days of receipt of that first draft that I send. Additional in-depth revisions are $50 extra, while additional quick edits are $20.

 

With the edit/feedback option, I'll go over it one additional time in-depth and do two more quick edits after. I ask that you ask for those additional revisions within 10 days of receipt of the current draft. After that time period and the included free drafts, in-depth revisions are $50 extra, while additional quick edits are $20.

***Please note that any projects requested AFTER 8/15 do NOT come with an in-depth revision. If you want big changes after my first draft, you will be responsible for doing them yourself! After which, I will be glad to perform two or three quick edits with minimal feedback (unless something is glaring).

I can currently accept payments (I require the full amount in advance unless we’ve negotiated otherwise) via Paypal (use this link: paypal.me/JoshDeCou) or Venmo (@JoshDeCou).

I do not offer any refunds once I start working.
