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?

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.
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.
