Can I Use the Same Essay for More Than One Application?

writing

Yes, as long as you fully answer the question.

In fact, we suggest that you create a list of all your essay topics from all your college applications, so you can see if you'll be able to use the same, or a similar, essay for more than one application.

If more than one college has the exact same question with the same length criteria, you can use the exact same essay. Often two different essay questions can be talking about the same core idea using different phrasing. In this case, you should see whether the same essay can work for both, or whether you can make slight changes to one essay to fully answer the question of the second essay.
