Thoughts on research statement extension?


Recommended Posts

There is no word count maximum (as in like a truncator that won't virutally let you exceed the limit), but some are asking for around 1000 words and/or two pages. Other universities just want me to upload the file, without specifying a maximum.

Part of the game is to be a concise as possible since the readers only have a limited amount of time to go through apps. You do yourself no favors by rambling on for 5 sentences when 1 would do. In any case, I doubt they'd throw out an app just because you added a few of extra sentences.

If you really have that much research experience, or that much to say then you could potentially put up a website with all the details and add a pointer to the site in your statement.
