Depends on the secondary. Some of the ugly ones (U of Chicago comes to mind) are taking me weeks.swtiepie711 said:I'm having trouble guaging how much time to spend on each secondary - how much time are you spending on these essays?
Agreed. This is our last attempt to make an impression on the school (ok, yeah, LORs too...but that's a little less under your control). Everybody said about submitting AMCAS: early is good, CORRECT is better. I'm kinda taking the same approach here.Robizzle said:take whatever time you need, don't base it off how we're doin' it!
I feel good about the quick, no essay ones I can turn around in a day. The longer the length is, the longer I spend writing it...I figure for the secondaries it's more about what you say than how you say it...and for the short ones, i figure it's about fitting everything in in the length requirement I'm given. (One of the Rush essays gave 1000 charachters to discuss two experiences!). I've taken anywhere from a few days to two weeks to get them in.jackieMD2007 said:Bumping this thread--lets get some more opinions. We talk about this like 3x a day.
