katerific Posted October 10, 2010 Share Posted October 10, 2010 Hello! So each school has different length requirements: write a brief statement write a statement no longer than 1 page compose a succinct statement of approximately1000 words etc. What would you define as brief? For that school, I have a happy draft of ~630 words, so a smidge over a page single-spaced. Is that "brief"? I know it'd work for the second school (with a little bit of modification). For the third one, I was planning on using a modified draft, adding a few things to boost up the word count. How short would be too short? Could I stop at say, 750, or should I aim for >900? In general, how much wiggle room do we have? I obviously want to give them what they ask for, so I'll aim for that.... but as you guys might know, that can be tricky. I apologize if this has been discussed already. I checked and I couldn't find anything that really addressed my question. (Maybe I overlooked?) Thoughts? Ideas? Cookies?
