I have some questions:

1.If you have a passion for a certain subject or activity, can you write about it twice (once in the common app essay and once in the supplement?)

2.If you self-taught yourself a subject, could you still let admissions people know through ways other than essays?

3. By first generation college student, does that mean both parents never attended college or just at least once parent never attended college?

4. Do colleges still accept updates (if you've won an award or something) after application deadline is past?

5. Do the essays for common application and the supplement essays for each school change every year?

6. Can colleges find out how many other colleges you've applied to and will that affect admissions?
