UC personal insights and supplemental

whensthedeadlinewhensthedeadline 0 replies1 threads New Member
I'm applying to UCLA FTV as a transfer.
I was looking at the UC personal insight questions and FTV supplemental questions then realized there was one identical question in both sections (Questions #5 from UC and the Life Challenge question from UCLA FTV). Would it harm to answer the same question in both applications? Should I try to avoid any questions that seem similar?

    If I were in your position, and considering you have 3 months to complete them, I would pick a different question from the personal insight.

    You want to make yourself as competitive as possible and you can do that by letting them know more about you. Using a personal insight answer for your supplemental does not let them know more about you and would put you at a disadvantage for those who do add something more to their application.
