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?

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.
