Choose your own topic?!

<p>I've started multiple essays, each that could suffice as my common app essay, but I'm not sure I like any of them. Also, many of the prompts coincide with the supplements of the schools I'm applying- I don't want my essays to seem redundant. So I've been thinking about the "choose your own topic" option, but I'm weary of it. I'd use an essay about being deaf in my left ear. I've wrote a draft already, seeing as I originally wrote it for my AP Language and Composition class last year. It's funny and unique, although it needs a bit "deeper" insight, which I can do with no problem.</p>

<p>I'd love an opinion of weather this would be appropriate or not.</p>
