How are u doing?
I am starting my third application and am having issues with my essays.
Many schools and even this forum say that if you can cut and paste essays for different schools then your essays are not good.
But these schools have the same damn questions... example:
1) what is your greatest professional accomplishment. How were you able to add value to your organization?
2) what is your most significant accomplishement?
3)We believe one of the keys to effective leadership is the ability to transform ideas into action through people. Please describe a professional leadership accomplishment in which you transformed an idea into action. How did your leadership impact your organization?
Sure they are all worded different.... but they are essentially asking the same thing? Now unless i have done something amazing in the course of writing these essays (less than 4 weeks) or my writing style has drastically changed.. i dont see why i should not cut and paste and make some small modifications to these questions.
Am i on a path to doom if i do that or do i really have to be that creative and think of 3 different most significant accomplishments?
I know a lot of schools imply that they are unique and their questions are unique, but at the same time i see a lot of similarities between all these schools as wel.
In short... if the questions are similar is there any harm in cutting and pasting and then editing?
Jeez.. after writing all these essays, i have become long-winded.
