Supplement vs. Common App essay

<p>So for the Rice supplement essay, the topic is to discuss the perspective you'll bring to Rice ("unique life experiences and cultural traditions"). I already wrote my Common App essay about accepting my Iranian culture. I'd like to write the Rice essay about growing up with three cultures (Iranian, Australian, and American) but I'm worried it's too close to my other topic. I have another essay on a completely unrelated topic for other schools' supplements, but the topic was "breaking out of your comfort zone," not perspectives. What would be best to do?</p>

<p>hmm. i'd stay on the "perspectives" topic and do the three cultures. but like you said, they can be similar, so i'd make sure to keep your other essay open and in mind and make sure they turn out different, because i think it's possible to make them different. it's a valid concern, because adcons will probably be reading them one after the other.</p>

<p>Thank you so much!</p>

<p>Anyone else have insight on this subject?</p>
