    Would it be a bad idea to say that you really want to go to their school and talk about the reasons why in the secondary? Basically, it would be a loi in the 2ndary app. I would add other pertinent information about me, but my interest in the school would be the major part of the essay. And before someone asks the question, the prompt doesn't give you any specific guidelines about what to write about. It is pretty open ended.

      Lots of schools as why you want to go to their school so it would necessarily be inappropriate.

      If you have space, talk about specific things you like about their school and why you think that will help you. But also include some other stuff that would make them want to choose you to be part of their school.
