Medical schools use secondary essays to learn more about the personal characteristics of applicants. The information collected from the secondary application is combined with the rest of the application, in order to present a complete and holistic view of the applicant. Ideally, a secondary essay should complement the other parts of the application seamlessly without any overlap. It is important for the secondary essays to thoroughly answer the supplied question; which will accomplish the goal of presenting the applicant as a highly capable future physician.
