Hello everyone,

I am in the process of applying to CRNA school for this upcoming year and I need some advice regarding the personal essay. My mother is actually a CRNA and my father was an Anesthesiologist so I grew up around the profession and was fortunate to have some unique experiences as a result. More specifically, I was able to participate in extensive shadowing experiences including a mission trip in which I assisted with anesthesia in the OR. I feel like including this in the essay would benefit me, however I'm not sure how admissions will view this since my involvement in these activities was a result of my parents being in the profession. Thoughts?
