I didn't write it.
Dean Pless says they don't YP so I took him at his word. In my app I explicitly state I'm aiming for the Chicago market and at the end of my PS I mention what makes Illinois stick out for me. I thought that was enough.
Yeah, if that's the case, then I definitely wouldn't write it. I don't mention UIUC in my PS, and I'm out of state, so I'm thinking it might be a good idea, though I don't want to submit a paragraph of BS. I can't determine where I stand in terms of numbers. The ranges are huge, and while I'm just under the medians, I'm far above the 25th and, from what I gather, the means. I wish schools were less cryptic with these data.
