Host: Am I judged any differently if I re-apply to a school that rejected me?
David Petersam: Re-applicants are sometimes viewed a little bit differently than first time applicants. Sometimes they even have separate essay questions that they have to answer. However, it doesn't mean that your chances are going to be greatly affected as a re-applicant, unless you did something really outrageous and you wrote some essay question or you gave some interview that raised a tremendous amount of red flags, you still have as good chances as re-applicant as a first time applicant. What you need to do as a re-applicant, show them that you are sincere about their school, show them that you really want to go there and show them how you have grown and how you have become an even better applicant now than when you first applied to the school.
