COMMON APP ERROR ON ESSAY Please help!
For the personal essay I chose the second prompt "Discuss some issue of personal, local, national, or international concern and its importance to you" as a mistake instead of the first prompt, "Evaluate a significant experience, achievement, risk you have taken, or ethical dilemma you have faced and its impact on you" which I wrote about.
There was even an option for "Topic of your choice," which I could have chosen.
Will this jeopardize my admissions in any way? Or would the board of admissions have picked up on my mistake and read it as a "Topic of your choice" essay? Is answering specific prompts for common app crucial?
