How flexible are supplementary essay topics?

Postby billables247 » Sat Nov 23, 2013 5:53 am

Does anyone know how far we can bend topics? For example, if the topic is "How does your background help enrich the environment of XYZ" can you spin it into a "Why XYZ" essay while sprinkling in items about your background?

Yes, that's fine. It's not like a law school exam or the LSAT where you will are expected to strictly answer the call of the question. Just stay within reason.
