I am curious whether or not applications get compared side by side if I reapply. More specifically, I want to know whether its a big deal if I keep most of my personal statement and primary app as is.. I believe that I was not accepted due to the fact that i applied VERY late in the cycle and that I dont have the most stellar GPA rather than my primary app lacking (I was granted many secondaries, interviewed and was waitlisted at one school). anyways, its not that I'm lazy, I just think my personal statement is very well written and my application itself is solid therefore i dont see much of a reason to brush that up. I have been making improvements in my gpa and am applying on time this round.
