Are Cornell supplement essays read separately?

<p>I want to major in computer science, and I've put down my primary / alternate colleges as Arts and Sciences + Engineering, as they both offer a computer science major. Now, I'm supposed to write separate 500 word essays detailing my interest in each. Naturally, the reasons for my interest in both are very similar as they are the same major; do you think it'd be OK if I used essentially the same essay with slight adaptations to fit the particular college?</p>
