Statement word count


Recommended Posts

From what I've gathered from my undergraduate professors, very few if any program committees reviewing applications are going to take the time to do a word count on every single statement they read, and that they suggest word/page maximums to encourage applicants to be as succinct and tidy as possible talking about themselves and their work. And while I don't know the content of your statement, I would definitely recommend combing it over to see if you can find and excise a sentence that contains information touched upon elsewhere in the document, or see if you can pinpoint any superfluous words (and especially adjectives) that may be driving up your word count and remove them.
