Referencing the school in your PS.

Did you either write school-specific personal statements, or alter them to include the school's name each time? Just curious.

Bump for my curiosity. I'm just mailing these bad boys off for the most part.

I inserted a "why x" paragraph for most schools and tweaked the rest of the PS to make it flow well.

The last paragraph of my PS was devoted to the school and why I wanted to go there. It should be really specific though, not just a place you can drop the name of any school in and have it work. I pulled info on each schools pro bono projects off their site and talking about them.
