Writing a "Why [school]" statement
« on: March 02, 2006, 10:13:09 PM »
Hi everyone.

I've been deferred at one school and am writing a "Why [school]" essay.

Does anyone have any tips in regards to what should be mentioned that doesn't sound like a laundry list of things that are good about the school? What I mean is, should I mention a particular course of study that I am interested in, something else of that nature, etc.?

Basically, if any of ya'll have written these, please share your approach to it.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Best of luck to all!
