“ My Personal Statement!
I'm in the middle of interview season for residency, which is fun, exciting, and suspenseful. So far, I have at least 10 interviews to attend (5 of which I already attended), all within the field of Family Medicine.
I wanted to let you know that a couple of Residency Directors specifically commented on the personal statement that you crafted for me, specifically stating that "the personal statement is very well written," and that "the personal statement was impressive." Another interviewer also commented that the personal statement caught her eye and the eye of the admissions committee, and that the personal statement got them interested in granting me an interview in the first place in order to gain a deeper perspective of me.
Again, I wanted to thank you for creating a personal statement and curriculum vitae which was well crafted! I'll keep you updated on my process of transitioning into residency, and let you know where I eventually match!“
Steven Perez, Osteopathic Medical Student Year 4 at Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine
“ Dr. Cindy Lewis was instrumental in counseling and guiding me as a young pre-professional health student. She took the time to know me well. She understood my dreams and my purpose and she provided the professional support and direction to help me attain them. Because of her direction, I was prepared to enter dental school in my junior year. Being on track is very important, as well as having your heart in the right place and knowing why you are doing what you do. Dr. Lewis helps her students to look deeper within themselves and to pull out their best attributes. Her guidance provides the anchor that all pre-professional students will benefit from. Thank you Dr. Lewis, for “the chance” to fulfill my life’s dream.“
Dr. Bowers, DDS, Entering Class of 1990, Northwestern University School of Dentistry, Specialty Dental Practice in San Diego, CA
“Dr. Lewis’s help and guidance were invaluable in helping me get into medical school. I will be attending USUHS this fall and couldn't have done it without her. My mother feels exactly the same way:
Hi Dr. Lewis,
I'm Matt Landon's mom and I just wanted to thank you for all you've done for Matt these past few years to give him direction and keep him on track. Your advice has been invaluable and evidently right on the mark! Matt will be the first one to admit he didn't think he needed to do what you were asking of him at first but now he understands that of course you knew what was right for him all along. He tells everyone he couldn't have done it without you. You were such a blessing to my husband and me as we could back off and let you take charge. Talk about a stress reliever! We think USUHS is a perfect fit for him and are thrilled that he was successful in the pursuit of his dream to be a doctor. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Matt Landon, Entering Class of 2009, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Medical School.
I read the article about your Alumna Dr. Carmen Ruiz, Harvard Medical School graduate, in the San Diego Union Tribune, and I see that you have not lost your touch. The time you visited my class at Southwestern College was so informative, that I still tell anyone who will take time to listen that they really need to start preparing early for the prospect of medical school. When I mention the statistics of your success, sometime people are skeptical because they are so used to negative outcomes in any services they seek. I really believe in what you do, because so many programs are not outcome successful, and I know first hand that your program is a good one. I am so pleased to see that you are still around and prospering."
T. J. Tate, Director, Higher Education Center Southwestern College San Ysidro
“Hi Dr. Lewis,
I hope you are doing well. Sorry, I haven't kept in touch. Medical school kept me super busy. I hardly had enough time to keep in touch with my family. I wanted to let you know that I'm graduating from medical school in a week. I start residency at USC LA county hospital this July. I decided to go into psychiatry. I want to thank you for being so supportive of my education. I thank God for mentors like you that helped guide me through the educational process! My family is really excited about my huge achievement. I got an award from Latino Medical Student Association for my commitment to the Latino community.
I hope to keep in touch from time to time."
Eva Correa, MD, Entering Class of 2006, UCLA-Drew Medical School
