I bet they don't even read that. I wrote something that wasn't even true about the school by mistake and they still accepted me. I'd go with something from the school website etc that seems interesting to you.

the dean's letter to the applicants on temple's website is fantastic for the essay.
honestly, i just recycled my essay from GWU and fleshed it out a bit more. it was short, sweet, to the point, highlighted what i thought was good about each school and easily transferable. i asked someone to read it for both schools and he said it was good. so, if you can, do that.
