Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

Helen Yang, a recently graduated dentist, is working on a book to help pre-dental students apply for school. Her team is compiling a book filled with a selection of really strong dental school personal statements to help pre-docs with this crucial step of the dental school application. They would love to have a strong representation from Tufts.

Read on if you want to be published in this exciting project! The deadline to submit is Monday, June 19!

If you got into dental school (which you did), are proud of your personal statement (of course you are), and want to see your masterpiece recognized and published in a book.

This project will create the first ever collection of successful dental school essays, by dentists, for pre-dents. We will publish a book with advice and top notch personal statements to inspire and help aspiring future dentists.

Please visit for more information and where to send in your submission. 

Deadline for submission is Monday June 19, 2017.

Your essay will only be read by members of the selection committee, removed of your identifying info. It will never be shared or published without your written permission.
