Which part is the personal essay?

I'm really confused.

Is it the one on the Common App? Can you send similar essays to the universities you apply?

I'm applying next year, it's better to start now :)

    Yes, some colleges have supplements (extra parts on the common app under "supplement tab.")
    Usually the one on the common app is the same to all the colleges you apply to, but you can change it by making different application versions. School specific essays will be in the supplement.
