    Hey all,
    Quick question, I think I know the answer though, just wondering about your experiences with secondary essays. Most schools that I have secondaries from want an essay catered to why I like their school in particular.
    Now I know these should be unique, so I'm going to use my research I've done when applying to explain what about their individual programs (structure/academic) I like. Most schools have their standard curriculum and options though.

    What kinds of other things do you think they look for? Maybe why I like the geographical location? Certain research at that school? Any other ideas?

    Also, should I restate some things from my personal statement in these secondaries?

    Thanks, good luck to all.
