I am currently working on my personal statement for Emory and the prompt says that you can cut and paste from your CASAA application. Both the prompts for the Emory personal statement and CASAA essay are similar and I was wondering if it is better to have two different essays or is it ok to cut and paste from the CASAA essay. There would be few differences in the essays since Emory's personal statement question is a little bit more specific, but I wanted to know if it would look bad to copy and paste. I would really appreciate advise from someone who had previously applied to Emory and how they went about submitting the essays.
Thank you so so much for your help!! I really appreciate it!
