Too specific with your field and using lingo that a lay person would not understand? Absolutely. Too specific in showing your commitment to rural communities and your desire to become part of the NHSC? Never. Make sure to put a quick phrase in there saying you are flexible to go where you are needed, but I don’t think anyone would ever read an essay with the thought of “this person way too committed to go rural! NEXT!”Do you think there is a danger to making the essays too specific? I really want to work in a rural community and I think that a lot of what I said is geared to that, but I'm concerned that they won't think I am flexible enough.
