Two questions that are essentially the same asked by different schools. Does this require two unique responses or could I copy and paste? The questions basically ask what my career goals are.

If they are truly the same question, there's no problem. But make sure if they are even slightly different, then you at least edit your responses to make sure you are answering their specific question. You just want to make sure it isn't obvious that you were actually answering another school's essay prompt and you simply copy and pasted. But obviously, you can't come up with separate career goals just because two schools asked that question.

Yep. It's not like the schools are going to see your supplemental essays to other schools.
