Hi everyone,

I was wondering if I could get some advice foe the secondary application. A lot of schools ask... "Why ___ School of Dentistry?" Would you recommend to highlight many aspects of the school, or just focus on maybe 2 unique things that really stand out to you? At first I was trying to highlight about 4 great things about the school, but I found it really hard to flesh out my idea in so little space. I'm thinking it many be more beneficial to choose a couple specific things that I can passionately defend.

Thanks for the input!

the essays vary in length for different schools, but for schools with shorter maximum lengths, i would focus on one or two things that make the school unique compared to all the other dental schools.
