I feel that the best way to assess an editing service is to look at samples of their work. They will usually show in their website a sample of how a personal statement looked before they edited it and after they made changes to it.
Sometimes, they just comment on this and that sentence or tell you to "go into more detail". These companies might not meet your expectations as they did not meet mine. Some editing services I know especially the free ones from externship companies don't really edit your personal statement. I passed mine to an externship company and the guy there edited only two words.
He just told me that it was a well-written PS. After I had my PS read by more reliable sources, I found out how wrong the content was I didn't talk about me but more on about the professor that inspired me and I had to overhaul and rewrite my PS. Be careful of these companies. They just use the "free CV and PS editing" to get students to avail of their services but the editing is inferior. I know a friend who had a similar experience in another externship company who offers free editing.
I also used to avail of the editing services of one of the popular companies in the poll above for my documents not PS, but other ERAS documents. But after I realized that they edit only the grammar, just tell me to "add more detail", and in the end, just praise how strong my document was to make me feel satisfied, I stopped using their services. To give a clearer picture, here is my experience in the aforementioned popular company: I passed a document to the company for editing and the guy keeps telling me to add more detail, so I ended up submitting it four or five times to him for further revisions.
Finally, I asked a relative of mine take a look at my document. This is a relative who worked for ten years editing CVs for information technology applicants in Canada. After I saw how my relative edited my document to make it strong and stellar, I realized how poor the service I was getting and how I was wasting my money. I felt bad because I really trusted the company and I thought I was getting great service because he kept praising my document and kept telling me how outstanding my credentials are.
I guess I fell for the flattery. So there it is. Fellow IMGs, let us be careful. Personal statement writing companies are a waste of money. No one knows you better than you. You are the best person that can write a 'Personal statement' for you. There's nothing wrong in sourcing for help, in regards to editing.
But that's what your friends and neighbors are for. I ordered a statement for a fellowship on Aug 20 from cspersonalstatements. Now he said he was in an accident and cannot complete the statement. I paid to DLA editing for my personal statement, and my experience is horrible. They are just making IMG fool and getting money. No response if ask to change PS or if you do not like your PS edited. I will rate them "the worst". I will suggest future resident to get their PS edited by Nextgenedting company.

Hey Im a caribbean student and I found these guys in Toronto medskule dot com who help with all the personal statement, CV, and interview prep. They also offer review courses too and their prices are good Best to avoid DLA. Thanks for a great chain, very useful information!
I used DLA per the recommendations of many of the earlier commentary and I appreciated the attentiveness that Mr. Lombardino gave to this chain. However, I obviously stopped reading the chain prematurely because I now see that others have experienced the same problem that i have, or possibly I was blinded by the early positive feedback.
Initially, I was impressed by their reasonable price and fast turnaround time as I was in a bit of a time crunch, however, what I did not realize was that it was a one-time edit and feedback ONLY.
I attempted to email my editor for revision feedback and did not receive so much as an email back. Although a good preliminary edit, it was filled with a lot of empty guidance and recommendations.
I am appalled at their business plan and lack of common courtesy. In my opinion, you'd be better off elsewhere. Thank You for Your Feedback. Lombardino, you're time would be better spent tending to your clients and not trolling the forums. If your service was as exceptional as you believe it to be, you would have no reason to worry about sites like these. Customer service and satisfaction speaks volumes about a company and its reputation. Your earlier reputation will quickly be dissolved if all of your clients prove to have these same experiences.
Personal Statement should be Personal. I think you don't need a professional services for your PS. Of course it's important that people you trust read and correct your PS if necessary but you should be able to write your own statement. There are so much resource available which must be enough to put you on the right path.
They won't tell you what you should write but there are different tactics and prompts that you should be able to use. Also many educational websites are providing resources. I came across to this resource recently which gives great tips about writing a PS http: You currently have 0 posts. Many bravos for Brian.
Many bravos for him. I am sure that my personal statement would stand out among other applicants. Highly recommend to Brian for all. I have used this website medfools. Before doing that, I looked at all the options provided in this post on residency personal statement services and visited their sites to find out the kind of work they do as well as how much they charge. But, I was surprised to see that samples of the work they provided is good but not as great as the guy 'medfool' who edited my PS and that too for a very reasonable price.
