After plowing through some of my secondaries, I have come to question the point of this step in the process (outside of collecting our money). Some of these questions are ridiculous to be asking on paper, and would be much better in an interview setting. Questions like: "why do you want to attend our school" or "why do you want to go into medicine" blah blah blah. The problem I have is that as a creative writer, the word limits and questions are too narrow for much elaboration. It's pretty impossible to stand out from the crowd in a secondary compared to a personal statement. Thus, my question: Do medical schools really care about what you write in your secondary?? It appears as if you have good numbers, recs and a solid application, you should be interviewed anyway?!? I'm confused!
