    Hi Everyone :)

    A quick question.... I was rather thorough in my primary application in terms of describing my employment, extracurriculars, honors/awards, honor society memberships and similar things... I made everything as detailed as possible thinking this would be the best approach. Now, I am finding secondary applications to be incredibly redundant. I am literally answering some of the exact same questions such as "What sort of work did you do during college?" that I have already completely answered in my primary application.

    How does one approach these questions without literally copy/pasting your responses from the primary?

    Thanks in advance :)

    It's just a matter of spinning if they ask for a job description. If not, just list what you've done. The schools are aware - painfully so, probably - that they're asking you to rehash your AMCAS. It's a virtually unveiled plot to take your cash. Paraphrasing works fine.
