The Maritime Scholar Posted October 11, 2020 Share Posted October 11, 2020 If anyone can give their input on this, I'd really appreciate it! So here are the WS requirements for each one of my 12 schools that I'm applying to: 15-20 pages 25 pages (minimum) One or two writing samples 12-20 double-spaced pages 15-25 pages No more than 25 pages 15-25 double-spaced pages (including notes) Two examples of academic writing (8-20 pages) Two samples (15-20 pages) 15-20 pages Around 20 pages 10-20 pages As you can tell, the average is around 20 pages for most of the schools. I'm using my master's thesis which is about 50 pages (not including preliminary pages and bibliography). I have been able to cut it down to about 30 pages. I noticed that when I changed the margins to 0.5 all the way around, it went down to about 27 pages. I was wondering if I changed the margins it would be okay. There's not a whole lot about the WS requirements on the applications pages of these schools, so I don't see why it wouldn't be okay. Also, I know papers in MLA style are double-spaced, but if there is no mention of that, would single-space be acceptable? All in all, I may just email all the schools and specifically ask them these questions, but I wanted to ask everyone on here first. Thanks! ?
