Possibility of using the college admission essay again
Please help me with my question.
Now I am a high school senior and I have applied to some colleges with my college admission essays. But recently I have started thinking about doing my military service first and then returning to studies.
Please someone help me find out whether I can use the very same admission essay I wrote for some colleges to apply to those colleges again after some years.
I need to clarify that my essay topic is quite generic and don’t think it would undergo any significant changes within 4 to 5 years.
Putting it simply – NO! You may check the website of your college of interest and see their policy for plagiarism detection. I can tell you that for the majority colleges, they would state that plagiarism of the student’s own paper is also plagiarism.
However, in some colleges, you can obtain the tutor’s permission to expand on your previous project. But this still should be the project properly worked with and with considerable amendments.
Hope I helped!
Good luck in your studies!
from I have been taught
(1) the student must avoid any plagiarism even that one of one’s own papers and
(2) it is better to readdress your ideas of writing with the duration of time since it may well happen that you on your own will not like your old essay after your thinking capability grows with time, so my answer to you is now way!
One guy did that as he thought that would be a smart thing to do and you know what he failed. Don’t’ repeat his mistake my friend
I think you have to rewrite your drafts, to the answer is ‘no’
