LSDAS prepares a report with your GPA and LSAT score and some information about your undergraduate institution.  This will go to every school.  You also have the option of setting all or some of your letters of recommendation as "general" letters, meaning they will go out to all of your schools as well.

Then, if you fill out your applications on LSDAS (which I recommend), you have the opportunity to attach essays to each application.  You can write one general one and attach it to all of your applications, or you can have a few different versions, or you can write a different essay for each school.  You can also attach other documents to answer specific questions that appear on individual school's applications (for instance, a "Why Penn" essay).

I hope this is helpful!
