Can you change your common app?

After submitting my common application, could I change my essay so it would fit the other school I’m applying for?

Say I apply to college x and I submitted my application already , could I change my application, in this case my essay, before I submit it to college y?

Yes, you can make edits to your 650-word essay before you send it along to your 2nd school and so forth.
