    Personal Statement Word Limit

    Advertisements



    Hello,

    In the application it says, "A maximum of 500 words should be adequate to answer the questions". Does this mean, 500 words max. for each question or 500 words max. to answer all three questions???

    Regards

    It's 500 total, that means all three questions combined, good luck

    To tell you the truth, mine exceeded 500 words. I had more than double that, actually. They did not say anything about it. And I got in!

    I would try to stick to the word limit. some people reviewing applications are sticklers about word length, better to stick within the limit although being over does not dismiss your application. It just might annoy the person reading it.

    good luck with you application

    I'm thinking mine was over, but it was all pertinant.
