Is there a benefit to writing a separate Why X essay if you can integrate it into your PS. The reasons I want to go to those particular schools are included in my PS, and I don't want to seem repetitive. Do schools like Duke, UVA, U Mich, and Penn want to see a separate essay or do they just care that you've made the effort to tailor your PS to their school?

I didn't write a single "Why [X]" essay, but I included a paragraph in my PS that I tailored to individual schools. The only school where it may have hurt me was Michigan, but I'm 90% sure I was waitlisted for YP reasons, not for weaknesses in my app.
