I felt like Case and Pitt were par for the course and that their secondaries didn't ask anything more than most. UChicago's was hell, though (I never actually finished it).Originally posted by hobs
Case (you need to write another 1-page essay)
Pitt (another essay one)

Do any of you get your secondaries proof read? Also, how long do you have until they have to be sent back in?
For instance, Harvard just wanted money. No essays.Originally posted by docmemi
i suggest you apply everywhere you want to based on what you think your chances are and not how long their secondaries are. that almost doesnt make sense to me. i know its hard, but just sit down and answer them. itll be worth it down the road when you find that applying to lots of places really makes a big difference. trust me!!

Oh no, I meant a maximum limit. I just found it difficult to really express what I wanted to in my essays when I was limited to 250 words per prompt.
