You're fine. Many people write more than one. And Penn really needs you to tell them you love them the most, so more is better, assuming the essays are well executed.

Also, I'm pretty sure a lot of the TLS school profiles are outdated; I would not use them as a primary source of application information.

Penn (LinkRemoved) wrote:If you wish, you may write an additional essay on any of the following topics. These optional essays allow you an opportunity to provide the Admissions Committee with additional relevant information that you were not able to include in your personal statement. Please include the essay with your application by electronically attaching it to your application before submission through LSAC. You may answer more than one essay topic if you so choose. Include your name and LSAC account number on each page. Please limit any optional essay to one page, double-spaced and title it appropriately.

Definitely fine, as midwest17's quote pretty much nails it.

I can't speak for Penn specifically, but I know lots of times a "General Fee" includes such things as student service fees (registrar, etc.), upkeep fees, capital enhancement fees, student activity fees, and various other things that are hard to put a finger on and may very well never benefit you.

"Technology fees" are generally network upkeep, paying people to run the network, paying for computer upgrades (present or future), printer ink, university televsion, etc.

Oh you don't like paying for all of our fees? Our school actually packages all of those costs together.

Both are equivalent to the service fee that Ticketmaster charges.
