J.,

It depends on whether you have other more value-added material that will get bumped by focusing the optional essay on your medical condition. However, since you say the condition was life-changing it sounds like it would be something you'd want to discuss at length in an essay. If you've already done so in one of the non-optional essays, then you may want to focus the optional essay on other, new material.

Hope this helps,
