    How do you people generally answer this prompt for secondaries? I always try to research the school if I don't have a very personal reason for going to the school. I've been thinking that they must get a lot of these types of essays though.

    Every school likes to think they offer something different. They want to see that you've researched the school and have a better answer than location. Focus on curricula offerings, missions and other things that may set the school apart from the rest.

    "I want to attend *insert name of school* because it offers a degree that allows me to practice medicine in the United States. Oh and your focus on something about serving rural communities that have a shortage of family practice docs really caught my eye too. *insert name of school*'s proximity to beaches full of tanned women with loose morals, tight clothing and high levels of intoxication played a very small role in my decision making process as well, just so I'm being completely honest." :laugh: :smuggrin:

    I assumed that by pre-allo the OP wasn't considering the carribean. But if so, then the above certainly applies. :D
