Too late to change essays?

<p>So I sent my EA app into Rensselaer with a rather mediocre essay on it. I recently wrote a new essay and it's much better. RPI gave me their medal, I have a 97.1 average with a very tough schedule, a 1460 on the sats, good ecs and recs. Do you think I should try to send this new essay, or wouldn't it matter?</p>

<p>Ask them to substitute the new essay for the old one.</p>
