before, i wanted to do 2nd looks but weeks ago I ask personally some PDs, asst PD & a couple of residents about it & they said it wouldn't help you with their ranking of applicants. it will only help you with when ranking them (sort of take a 2nd look to be able to know how wud you rank the program) and not the other way around.
am also in same dilemma now, as 2nd looks are another addition to the already high expenses we've incurred for this process..
