Is it OK to use the same nomination essay for the academies themselves as for the nominations? The questions are all 'Why do you want to attend a service academy?', and my answer is the same every time. My problem is, the VP nomination essays go directly to the academies, so if I send the same ones, they will see that. Please let me know what you think. BTW, I am just preparing essays for when I can start applying for nominations in March for 2017.
