Can I recycle the same essay for two different universities if they have a similar prompt? +A question about karma

If I have a very compelling story which can become a "wow" factor can I use it for answering similar essay prompts of different universities? Do AOs check in with each other or something?

P.S. When I opened this site last time I had 44 karma points but now I apparently have 34! Is this a glitch or intentional?

Yes, if you have a "wow" factor and a compelling story, there is nothing holding you back from using that on many essays. I would suggest you do it because it makes your life much easier and the "wow" factor would still be present. They do not check in with each other, so you do not have to worry. Regarding your question about karma, I am not sure what happened.
