LJK Posted November 5, 2010 Share Posted November 5, 2010 Hi Everyone, I have a beautifully, well-crafted SoP that I have gotten to the point where I send it around and mostly just get minor comments (word choice, clarify this sentence) back. (More looks are always welcome though!) However, I was on the Stanford Graduate Admissions site last night and discovered a limit: 2 pgs. It is only on 'Are you ready to apply?' pages, not the actual application instructions. My SoP that I am getting to the point of content with is 2.33 pages, 1362 words. The Department of Psychology website does not say anything about a limit, and the actual application has a upload size limit of 5mb (my document is 188kb). Also, Carnegie Mellon does not have a hard limit, just a rough guideline of ~1000 words. I feel like I am talking about substantial things for the whole 1300+ words. Would you leave in the bit of 'extra' length? Or cut it down to be safe? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
