Can I write a college-specific essay about a similar topic as my Common App essay?
One of my schools requires an essay about a piece of literature that inspired you. For me, a particular poem came to mind. However, my common app essay is about how I discovered poetry (and the poem I thought of is by the same poet I mention in the common app essay!) Is that okay, or should I change topics?

Try the different topics. So that you can show your personality more better. And they will understand your perspective and how the person you are...
