I am applying the CUSP-ACEC Program and I have chosen my top five firms. Do I have to explain why I want to work with each firm?

Yes. For each firm you are interested in, please explain you want to work for the firm, what you intend to learn from this experience and how it aligns with your academic and career interests. This should serve as the answer to the first question on the application form.
