    I just submitted my first portion of my application and am now at the essay section. The essays I submitted for AIM (which I was accepted to) come up along with new essay requirements. Do I submit my orignial essays or should I rewrite them?

    I'd suggest re-doing your essays. Your reasons and motivation to attend CGA should be different from your reasons to attend AIM. Plus, you might be able to incorporate your AIM experience into the essays. Good luck!

    You've probably also noticed that some of the essay questions have changed since you answered them on your AIM application, so that's another good reason to rewrite the essays.
