As I'm sure many of you know, I am a reapplicant applying to repeat the 10th grade. Last year I also applied for 10th grade. I am currently a sophomore and was a freshman last year.
To my dismay, I found 9/10 schools had the exact same essay questions as last year. This left me with a dilemma: Is it bad to just copy & paste essays from last year to the same schools for the same prompts? Will they notice this? Will that effect me poorly in the process?
Of course, I am not doing this for many of the essays. But there are some that I think are already at their best and it would be best to just re-use. I'd love to hear some thoughts or what others have done in the past.
