So on Pitt's website it says "If you decide to complete the optional essay question, you can choose one of the topics suggested below or select a topic that reflects something about you and your interests." I don't know whether I should write a new essay or just use the one I used for my common app. I wrote about my first memory which was seeing a rainbow reflect onto my rug and trying to touch it. I related that to unattainable dreams and then back to how I persevere. I had it edited by several people and everyone has said it's very well written. Would it work for my Pitt essay?
