UC San Diego's application lets you apply for a fellowship if you submit two essays in addition to your SOP.
Thing is, I feel like my SOP already interweaves answers to those questions in a cohesive way. Would it be ok to simply submit the same essay for my SOP and one of the fellowship prompts? I could split my SOP up into one part academic/research and another part personal, but I think it might diminish the effectiveness of the original essay. What do you guys think?
