    If I plan to continue activities over my gap year that I already described in my primary, how should I describe them in secondaries? Should I simply say that I plan to continue them, or should I repeat the descriptions in my primary?

      Don't assume that the same reviewer will have access to both the Primary and Secondary applications. But in case it is the same person, use different vocabulary when you describe them the second time, so it seems fresh.
