Is anyone applying to or know anything about Georgia Tech's M.Arch application? The supplemental materials portion of the application asks 2 essay questions, one of which being, "How have your experience and background prepared you for your studies at Georgia Tech?" Later on in the application, there is a personal statement requirement that asks the same question. 

I've reached out to advisors at the school but they are all on winter break...Can I just upload the same response for both or is there something I'm missing?

Anyone else applying to the program have any input on the situation?

Why would you ever upload the same essay to two questions...

Just think hard and write something different its probably only 300 worlds that would take 20 minutes to write . There are applicants that have so many aspects of themselves that they want to show but can't fit into all the essay questions

yes, you are missing something: about 50% of the minimum effort required.

I'm applying to GT right now too! Personally, I'm creating separate essays since the personal statement requires a lot more information.

If you'd still like to speak with advisors, Robin responded to me earlier today so it seems like she's available to answer questions.

GT M.Arch grad! 

Does Robin still work there? Ask her, she was super helpful when I was applying back in the day.

Yay GT! I think Robin still works there - she helped me with the application process. Do you remember when you heard back from Tech about admissions decisions?
