How specific should we be in our essays? Should we go as far as citing actual classes in the common essay, and citing specific extracirriculars?

Getting specific is probably a good thing, imo. It lets the adcom know you've at least done your research and are truly interested in attending the school.

For specific, don't be vague. Simple as that, include detail and precision. Don't say something like, "Oh this was the best thing in my life." or "My life was changed from that point." They'll be like, "Why was it? Is it really that important?" Back up any central points in your essay like, "I decided to change my life when I realized the future consequences being brought about. I knew that I was capable of much more and would not fall into the post-high school trap my friends unknowingly tripped."
Get the idea?
