As I begin my NYU supplement, I realize the 3rd question is the same as...

<p> common app essay.</p>

<p>Common app essay prompt: </p>

<p>Describe a character in fiction, a historical figure, or a creative work (as in art, music, science, etc.) that has had an influence on you, and explain that influence. </p>

<p>NYU: </p>

<p>What intrigues you? Tell us about one work of art, scientific achievement, piece of literature, method of communication, or place in the world (a film, book, performance, website, event, location, etc.), and explain its significance to you</p>

<p>The questions are SO similar... I have one response for the question but I'm not sure if I have two. Surely I can't write about the same thing, can I?</p>

<p>I wouldn’t. </p>

<p>use it as an oppurtunity to write about 2 different things</p>
