Is it ok to reuse the essay I used last year and just make edits to update it? I got into the schools I applied to last year, just decided not to matriculate for several reasons.

I noticed that they use Turn-it in down dot com so I assume it would pop up as a match. I just don't know if it will pop up as being mine. Or even if they will think it's lazy to rework the same essay

If you turned in the exact same essay, I'd take it as being lazy. Or at least ask: You haven't learned or done anything this whole past year? But if you make significant edits to it, I don't see why that'd be a problem. Your reason for pursuing pharmacy school is unlikely to have changed. Good luck!

That's my two cents. Take it for what it is. I don't serve on admissions committees, so I don't know how they would perceive it.

I would change at least 20% of it.
