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

(assuming I become a Finalist but not matched and some colleges ask for my common app in addition to QB application) or should it be different and not redundant?

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.

Good Luck
