Personal Essay

This may sound really stupid, but I honestly don't know, so disclaimer.

For your personal essay, is that one of the seven essays you choose on common app/one of the topics you choose on coalition? Or are those essays separate from your common app/coalition essay that you choose?

    I can’t speak to the Coalition App but I imagine it is the same as the Common App. The personal essay is just the one you choose from the application list of prompts. There are a bunch of schools that have other, supplemental essays that are unique to that specific school. Some you can see as you are doing the application but there was a school (maybe 2) that my daughter applied to last year that sent you an email link to their supplemental essays after the application was already submitted.
