Can I recycle essays for different secondary applications?
Yes, but be careful. Make sure to adhere to each school’s specific guidelines. Also, ask yourself, “Is my answer properly answering this prompt?” Two schools might be asking similar questions but they may be worded differently. This might require two versions of the same answer. For example:
- What makes you unique? How will you contribute to our school’s medical community?
- Are there any special experiences, unique factors, or other information that would help the admissions committee in evaluating you?
