I decided to re-apply to DO medical schools this year. I have re-written my personal statement. However, I don't know if I should re-write the descriptions of my extracurricular activities. If I copy the description from my last year application, will it hurt my application?

It's always safe to have someone look over your EC description for review. But more often then not I think it's how your ECs have changed since the last time you applied.

I don't think schools would remember and I don't know that they would necessarily care even if they looked. Again, like it has been said, they care more about how different of a candidate you are now. What have you done to show the ADCOM that you are a better candidate now and more deserving for a spot in their school.

Good luck. I would think that re-writing your ECs would not be necessary, however that doesn't mean you couldn't have someone look over them again in case there are some improvements that could be made.
