How many people do Topic of Your Choice?

<p>I am just curious to know how many people pick to do Topic of Your Choice for CommonApp</p>

<p>Hah, interesting question considering I was just talking about it with my friend. I didn't want to do "topic of choice" because I wanted colleges to see that I was able to take a simple question/task and make it my own. With topic of choice, I feel like the pressure's on to be extremely creative, something I just didn't think was worth it.</p>

<p>I just wrote my essay and tried to fit one of their prompts to it after. I wrote about being a Mets fan and said that was an issue of personal, local, or national importance.</p>
