    Of course. In fact that would be essential in your case. Terms like investigated, researched your school with examples are good. Did you notice a class in the college catalog that was interesting to you? Why? Does it seem like a learning environment that appeals to you? Why? Can you see yourself being successful there? Why?

    Absolutely. Show that you know that you'll contribute to the community and that you've done your research. A friend who is an AO said it's incredible how often applicants talk about wanting to major in something the school doesn't offer.
