Is it okay to base both the Essay and Personal Statement on a particular topic?

<p>The long essay goes into detail about how I overcame my sleeping disorder, as it flows smoothly to the major that I want and the significance of it. It's only a little over 500 characters.</p>

<p>My personal statement which only has a 250 character focuses on how the sleeping disorder negatively affected me in school. Both essays have strong and slightly different conclusions. </p>

<p>Teachers told me they forgot they were reading an essay because they were captivated. Could this be an overstatement or should I leave the essays be?</p>
