Re-application

If you feel like your experience boxes were reflective, then there is no reason for you to rewrite those. If you look back at your experiences a year later and realize that you got something different out of them than what you wrote in your previous application, you should rewrite them. You should always rewrite your personal statement because it looks lazy if you do not. Screeners have access to your previous applications and they know what you wrote the last time. Letters of recommendation from the previous application are fine. However, if you have done something new, there might be someone that  you have worked with since your previous application who can speak to something different from your other letter writers. We realize that you don't always know what your letter writers say about you. Nevertheless, hopefully you have met someone who knows you in a different way. Add one or two new letters.
