The personal statement express was a lifesaver!!! I wasn't even going to apply this application cycle; however, with a last minute change of plans, I found myself scrambling to get everything finished. I had just written my personal statement, and was about to submit my application, and I was able to get feedback just a few hours after I sent it. The advice was very thorough and helpful! I actually talked with a dental school admissions committee on the phone to receive application feedback, and they said I had one of the best personal statements they had ever seen. Thank you DAT Bootcamp!!!
- Julia R.

I used the Personal Statement Express Overview that is offered by DAT Bootcamp because I was finished with writing my personal statement, but I couldn’t find the “perfect” final draft. I wanted an honest opinion from someone who didn’t know me. Using this service was a wonderful experience! My assigned expert contacted me through email and thoroughly reviewed my personal statement within a day. The review included an overview of each paragraph with comments on the content, ways to improve the structure of the paper and grammatical corrections. In addition, my expert rated my paper out of 10 and wrote a summary of how the paper was put together and his thoughts on enhancement. The courteous feedback and timeliness of service was exactly what I needed to feel confident in my personal statement. It helped me to take what I wrote and make it into a strong, well-structured personal statement that I loved.
- Elisa N.

My experience with DAT Bootcamp admission was great. There was a great communication which allowed making the phone call appointment very easy. The phone call itself was very helpful for me. Before making the phone call, I was very unsure of where I stood regarding which schools I have a chance in being admitted but Bootcamp.com made it very clear for me. He carefully answered all the questions I had and even allowed me to ask questions after the session. Now I feel confident regarding what school I will be applying to.
- Emily P.

My personal experience with DAT Bootcamp service has been outstanding. Bootcamp.com was very responsive and helpful throughout the process of completing my personal statement. I would highly recommend this service to anyone wanting to craft an immaculate personal statement.

Alex was amazing! He helped me so much - he helped me come up with ideas for my personal statement, draft it and edited it numerous times, paragraph by paragraph. His service was always fast and efficient, and he always answered emails, texts and calls in a timely manner. Thank you so much for everything!
- Sarah A.

I loved my experience. Bootcamp.com gave me a call and we talked about the personal statement and we had a mini game plan on how to proceed, and Bootcamp.com quickly started a google doc so we could both see my results. Bootcamp.com would revise almost everyday and warn me if something didn’t sound good. I loved [Team Bootcamp’s] honest opinions and I ended up with a killer PS that we both liked. It got me into 9 top dental schools with scholarships at most of them!
- Monique M.

It’s the best resource. I have to say a huge thank you to Bootcamp.com for all of his support. Bootcamp.com made the process of applying to dental school so much better and much more professional for me. I greatly appreciate the DAT Bootcamp team for their help. You guys are the BEST.

I am thrilled with the experience that I had with DAT Bootcamp. It not only helped me with the actual DAT tremendously, but Bootcamp.com was super helpful and prompt at answering and guiding me through the entire application process. I’m extremely happy and grateful for all the help from you guys. Without you guys I wouldn’t have been accepted into my dream school.
- Jason L.

Getting that acceptance letter from my #1 school made this service worth every penny. I had written a pretty good personal mission statement on my own, but Alex helped me to dig a little deeper, refine my format, and create a narrative that flowed smoothly. With his help I was able to write an excellent personal mission statement that truly communicated who I am and why I want to be a dentist. I'm honestly so happy I chose to use this service.
- Natiri S.

I really liked the admission services from DAT bootcamp. Bootcamp.com was quick to respond and even would help me proofread and give me updates about the progress. My essay turned better because of the help that I got!

- Shah P.

DAT Bootcamp Admission Services helped me a lot, especially with my experience review.

The communication was fast and my whole experiences were edited in less than a few days.
- Sahba M.

The feedback I got on the draft I submitted was very constructive and clear. The turnaround time was also fantastic. The process definitely helped me write a PS that was well organized and compelling.
