Supplement and Common App overlap

<p>If the supplement of the common application asks us to write a specific essay about why the school is a match for us and why we want to transfer, should we also use the same essay for the generic common application prompt? I see no reason to write two essays on the same topic, especially if I'm only applying to duke.</p>

<p>I'd also like some input on this since I have the same problem. I'm only applying to one school, so I wanted to personalize my common app essay, but I'll run into overlap with the supplement essay.</p>

<p>Nevermind.</p>
