Is it allowed to reuse supplement essays?

<p>Just wondering. For example, for the "Why NYU?" essay on the NYU supplement could an applicant use the same exact essay for the "Why Yale?" essay on the Yale supplement?</p>

<p>Are you allowed to do this? If not, are you allowed to reword it a little. </p>

<p>NYU and Yale are different, but say that there was a similar supplement essay for two schools. Like "What intrigues you?" Could I use the same exact essay for both schools?</p>

<p>For the commonapp. Thanks.</p>

<p>If it works for both, then sure, why not.</p>

<p>They can't see it right? I'm worried since the schools claim ownership of the essay materials could there possibly be a conflict. </p>

<p>No problem just copying and pasting certain supplements? I want to use a great piece I wrote for several schools essays.</p>

<p>as long as they didn't make you check a box that says you can only send them essays unique to THEM, then it's fine! if they care, it's their fault for picking the same supplement as another school :P</p>

<p>Yeah as long as YOU wrote them it's fine :)</p>

<p>Lol I'm doing that for almost all my essays, it's fine. ^As letsgoeat said, no plagiarism, no problem. </p>

<p>Good luck with both NYU and Yale! :)</p>

<p>I'm doing 20+ applications, so when I see a essay topic ambiguous enough or similar enough to a topic I've already wrote about that I can reuse my old essay or at least parts of it, you're damn right I do lmao. So I hope I'm not breaking any rules :x
The other day just for the hell of it I decided to apply to a backup backup school (was a moment of low self-confidence) and I literally spent 5 minutes on my essay, just copy and pasting parts of other essays and putting it all together.</p>
