Why don't colleges just work together and have standard essays? I see so many people forgetting to change college's name in "why ..." essay. They do know we are applying to 10 or more schools so "why ..." essay can't be that unique

Not a bad idea but colleges do want to see if you are actually interested in them although I also believe they want to attract as many applicants as possible

I think "why.." essays show how dedicated a student is towards the school. If you do a lot of research and find activities/programs at that college that align well with your personality and achievements, they'll know you're for real. If you write a generic essay, it's a strong indication that you're not applying because of genuine interest, but applying for the sake of applying.
