I ordered all three of Dr. Gray’s books a few weeks ago and have had an extremely hard time putting them down.
I’m a non-traditional premed without premed advisors at my college, so I’m left trying to navigate my way to med school until I’m able to transfer to a university. Let me just say - Dr. Gray’s books provide SO MUCH clarity. If you’re having trouble planning your path to med school or are full of questions about this journey, highly recommend these books. While I’m not at the point of beginning my own personal statement, I feel confident that reading this book has armed me with the knowledge I’ll need to put together a statement that will stand out to medical schools.
Another thing I love about his personal statement book in particular is that the messages and tactics Dr. Gray lays out are universal. My husband is active duty military and currently working on applying to an officer program. In order to do so, he needs to construct a really powerful personal statement. I can’t tell you how many times he’s borrowed this book from me because the book is chock full of strategies to put your best foot forward in the most engaging and unique way, regardless of which career path you’re on. He obviously just looks past the med school jargon and applies the big-picture principles to his military career.
Buy this book... all of Dr. Gray’s books, actually. You will NOT regret it!

If you want to get into med school...25 October 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to get into med school this book is for you! Dr. Ryan Gray is very knowledgeable with his experience with helping students matriculate. He offers great advice and samples of personal statements that are great, and others that are not-so-great, with his personal feedback on how to improve. This is a great place to start if you don't know what to write about, or a great read to try and better the statement you have now.

Imperative for students writing their personal statement.28 September 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
As a pre-health professions advisor who is not a physician, I rely on outside sources, people, books, podcasts, etc. to learn how to best help my students. This book has helped me understand the what and why that makes a great personal statement. If you are a student looking to get into medical school, this will be a great return on investment!

Don't Pass On This Book6 March 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
Honestly this book was an incredible read. I had attended various personal statement meetings with my pre-med program and have looked at other resources before coming across this book. Needless to say I wasted a lot of time with those other sources because Dr. Gray's book had a lot more useful tips, tricks, and advice for writing MY best personal statement. He helped me see how I needed to SHOW adcoms rather than tell adcoms in my personal statement. Honestly a tremendous value you for what you get. If you are struggling with your personal statement or even if you think you have a solid statement, I encourage you to buy this because it will honestly help you have the best personal statement possible.
