Do you need a good reason to write optional essays?

Postby fdo15 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 12:20 pm

Is it still helpful to write optional essays even if I don't have anything particularly compelling to say in response to any of the prompts? I could probably come up with something to say to almost any essay, but if I feel like my personal statement is a strong writing sample is it better to let it stand alone and not risk frustrating admissions departments with essays that either wouldn't have much substance or would be major stretches?
