I've looked through this year's and previous year's thread, but I guess I'm still wondering exactly how optional are some of the questions. The only 2 that really pertain to me are the not being a New Yorker questions and why specifically SUNY.
For the why SUNY question, I have a brief sentence about wanting to focus on urban medicine as a physician. I don't know what else to put? Should I leave it blank instead of writing a general sentence that may come off as generic?
