It’s common to reuse essays for several college applications, but when you do so, if you include the name of the school in your essay, make sure to use the right name for each application!

You’d be surprised how often someone writes an essay that mentions Yale, for example, and then accidentally submits the essay elsewhere, forgetting to change “Yale” to the name of the second school. Watch out for this. I know it’s obvious, but people screw up the “duh” items too, ya know!
