If I am applying through Questbridge, can my main Common App essay be the summary of my QB 800 personal statement essay?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Some of the Common App essay topics are similar but not exactly. I guess you can use prompt #7 to submit a topic of your choice but you would still have to edit it since QB is 800 words and CA is 650 words. I'm not sure any AO would want to read 2 similar essays 1 longer, 1 shorter.
