The advice I have gotten from about 12 people so far is that the only rule to which we should absolutely adhere in writing our PS's and interviewing is to AVOID saying, "Ever since I tore my ACL playing high school football, I knew that orthopaedics was for me."

This sounds like good advice.

Dude just say you spent three years in Africa setting HIV+ patient's fractures.

Work hard, do well, and by all means act personable. No one wants to work with a tool bag for five years. My personal statement was probably too personal. Keep in mind that applicants could make up all kind of shit and I actually had a program directer indirectly accuse me of this. What a dick bag he is. Yea I ranked that program but low, really low.
