Quick question. When you guys do secondary applications, do you approach the questions from a conversational/interview point of view or more of an essay point of view? Some of these schools limit the characters to 300/500/800 characters and questions that are 'weird' to construct essays around like we did for the primaries. I don't know if they prefer all the characters used?

I did both! It's really up to you and how you think you can best answer the question :)

I have an aunt who asked me if my brain ever turns off. Nope, it doesn't - which is kind of too bad in some situations!

That said, I used the prompt and character/word limit to guide me. My responses were generally essays, but often included phrases like, "I learned XYZ through this experience." or something along those lines. I hope that helps a little.
