    On a particular medical school? How it's different from others and why you'd go there over another school? Other than location, all the descriptions I read are pretty generic. It also doesn't help answer the "why our school" essays either. Where did you guys research the specifics? Right now, location seems to be the main priority... but I obviously can't write that on secondaries.

    Many people have been asking about this in different threads but I don't think we've found an answer. Also, it seems weird to say, "I want to attend your school because of your pass/fail grading system."

    Med school students say in-depth info about a specific school is useless, and here we are trying to find in-depth information on schools.
